Un formidable pu etazo al insoportable antiamericanismo que destila Europa, a los mitos, las falsedades, las mentiras, los prejuicios Revel en estado puro, un polemista sin parang n que desmonta una por una todas las estupideces que se dicen sobre EE.UU y sus ciudadanos los presidentes paletos, los incultos yanquis, amantes de las armas, la Biblia, el d lar, lo material, el capitalismo al cubo Al final no queda m s remedio que convenir, con el autor, que toda la mala baba que destilamos contra E [...]

I wouldn t recommend this book to any of my friends I believe in our Country, and want our actions to be mostly right if not always right, and had hoped that I d read good discussions with real detail in support of that As the author suggests, any Nation which is always right is as mythical as one which is always wrong Yet I found this pro American Frenchman seemed to introduce a variety of expressions of anti americanism from around the world, many of which I d never heard before, and try to sa [...]

Is essential reading this book to understand the global incoherent arguments against the U.S.

Excellent book Revel does not portray America as a perfect nation in quite a few cases, he mentions aspects of the United States that he dislikes Without fawning on the United States as a perfect country unworthy of any criticism, he explores and points out the hypocrisy and ludicrousness of the anti American arguments floated primarily by the Europeans and Arabs.Some have mentioned his book was dry, but I personally found it very lively and interesting Revel s brutally sarcastic and witty way o [...]

Very dry, and seems almost like an outline or precursor to another work Yet, I can t find much wrong with his analysis of global ideology which is just now gaining traction a decade and a half later This book was certainly ahead of its time.

Provocador, y necesario, pero justificado con generalizaciones demasiado gruesas Decepcionante.

It s so interesting to hear a defense of the US from someone who s not in camp Merica I also learned a lot about France This has nothing to do with the book I had serious insomnia the past few weeks, so I read this over the course of a few nights at 3 to 5 in the morning Then I read it a second time, also at night, because I don t always retain much at that time of day I might not have retained much the second time either.

Review In 1972, Revel shocked the world with his best selling book, Without Marx or Jesus, in which he defended America against global denunciation Thirty years later, Revel is back with the same purpose His latest book, a bestseller in France, comes at a crucial time It seeks to explain the root cause of the world s and particularly Europe s obsession with hating America He does not pretend that America is perfect But he argues that the daily denunciations exceed the bounds of reasonable critic [...]

One whoops with delight to find, in the excellent Jean Fran ois Revel, a Frenchman with the sense, understanding, and knowledge to defy Left Bank modishness and defend America with spirit against its dimwit foes Many parts of this book are good for heart and soul alike, being brisk, merciless refutations of Euro smugness about Kyoto, the death penalty, racialism, inequality, and the rest of the false claims of the new Europe to be morally and politically superior to the nation on the far side of [...]

Ravel uses two main approaches in his argument against Anti Americanism 1 Anecdote based generalizations He frequently uses examples of the behavior of one or two individuals to make generalizations about the entire group of which they are a part From this logic, the majority of Muslims are not moderate pp 68 69 and most Japanese and Brazilians are guilty of hypocrisy, pp 81 and pp 174 respectively 2 Comparing contrasting U.S policy with that of other countries without evaluating the strength of [...]

I read this book back in high school, for a debate assignment This book helped me to understand better how globalism affects the world economy, and why America gets such a bad rap for it I think that Revel was biased just a little on the side of America he s perhaps a little too apologetic but overall I recall this as being a fair and balanced investigation into why some people in other countries hate America so much.One note I think this book left out some historical factors that would have bee [...]

Anti Americanism is an excuse for people in other countries to ignore the evils their governments commit, a slightly intellectual diversion than going to a blockbuster movie This book makes the commonly overlooked case that any rich world nation has a ridiculous amount of hipocrisy to its constitutition, focusing particularly on France s hipocritical behavior The United States of America has done some terrible things since 9 11, but focusing hatred on them blinds people from improvement usually [...]

This is a great book The title is rather misleading since it is about why others are Anti American when they clearly should not be He makes a very logical argument to support his ideas and gives many demonstrations as to why he is correct The only reason why he got 4 starts instead of 5 is that he used big words and mixed in lots of French words is his writing It made it rather difficult to read sometimes There were also a few parts where he started referencing complicated functions of the US g [...]

Revel hace un an lisis completo del antiamericanismo , llamando la atenci n sobre la hipocres a de los pol ticos europeos que critican a Estados Unidos, y la desinformaci n imperante en los medios de comunicaci n al hacer referencia a EEUU lo que l gicamente se ve solucionado con innumerables prejuicios Yo dir a que este libro le va a gustar a cualquiera que quiera apartarse un poco de los lugares comunes de los propagandistas, y a analizar m s friamente al pa s norteamericano, sin idealizarlo p [...]

I really expected a book in which a Frenchman rails against the anti Americanism of Europeans to be entertaining Alas, it was not A slow read, stating the obvious Americans are a diverse lot of people, and they usually don t fit the European stereotypes of them America is a good country, as far as countries go, and a pretty swell place to live It s not perfect, but, on average, it s far a force for good than a force for evil in the world, and it hardly deserves to be so commonly reviled.

The book is great , the subject is definetly pretty interesting and Revel s arguments are mostly undeniable, but, the book focus too much on France and French p.o.v the scope could be larger and there are so many issues that he could have written about this subject Anyway the book is a must read for talking about something which happens all the time around us non americans , but we usually don t realize.

Readability 7 Rating 7 Finally a Frenchman I like Revel pretty much goes off on France and Europe for their Anti Americanism, which manifests as anti democratic, anti liberal, anti globalization He also highlights the internal inconsistencies that should be embarrassing to any sound thinker In many places, I stopped and just thought to myself that is exactly how I see it but I had never been able to make clear to myself Wonderful.

Don t let the cover fool you, this book is actually the opposite of what you would think It s pro American, it seeks out why others in the world are anti American, and why many of them have no ground for such views And it was written by a Frenchman

An interesting attempt at an unusual topic, I didn t agree with many of the author s theories but I found the read to be interesting nevertheless that helped introduce another perspective to this phenomenon.

Insightful Not quite engaging enough for me to make it through because of a lot of standard Conservative viewpoints I m already familiar with , but still, overall, an interesting book.
