Pressestimmen"...splendid cover of which features a ravenous man-eating shark...some contributions-especially those by Mary Louise Pratt, Greg Grandin, Timothy Mitchell, Kristin Ross, and Rebecca Karl-are outstanding. Michtell, whose essay "American Power and Anti-Americanism in the Middle East" is truly superb."--BookForum "This timely and thoroughly absorbing book is the best, most comprehensive and most critical survey of anti-Americanism available. A thoughtful antidote to the blah blah blah of CNN and network news, Anti-Americanism provides a subtle unpeeling of US global domination and multiple political and cultural responses to it. If you want to understand what the news is calling anti-Americanism, this is the book to read." --Neil Smith, author of American Empire: Roosevelt's Geographer and The Prelude to Globalization
