Synopsis: Global Perspectives on the United States is a unique, nonpartisan survey, written by experts from around the world. It is the first general resource to explore the role and image of the United States from the viewpoints of the peoples and nations of the world. The 140 comprehensive and extensively annotated articles provide historical coverage and contemporary analysis-drawing on a wide range of sources, including nineteenth-century travel accounts, international treaties, newspaper stories from around the world, and popular music. Fascinating sidebars, illustrations, and statistical snapshots emphasize the countless influences that have shaped perceptions of the United States since its founding, and the broad coverage vividly sets out the complications and contradictions that are an essential part of global perceptions of the United States.
