Synopsis:
With wit and passion James Ceaser traces the origins of negative impressions European scholars perpetuated, beginning in the 18th century. Ceaser contends that American politics, culture, and institutions have assumed this negative imagery too long--and that for our own good we need to upgrade our standards and reassert America's original ideals.

Topics Europe; Foreign public opinion, European; France; General; Germany; History; History & Surveys; History & Theory; Intellectual life; Modern; Non-Fiction; Philosophy; Political Science; United States For too many people, America has become the primary symbol of all that is grotesque, deadening, and oppressive—or, as Heidegger once put it, the "emerging monstrousness of modern times." This image of a degenerate America, constructed in large part by European intellectuals, has been gradually accepted within the United States, for America is now under siege by its own philosophers, literary critics, and postmodern thinkers. It is time, says James Ceaser in this provocative book, to remind ourselves that the real America—as opposed to the symbolic one—has forged a system of liberal democratic government that has shaped the destiny of the modern world.
