Two articles for Super Tuesday, Primary Day in 13 US states, from our 2008 Global Perspectives volume. We plan to bring this three-volume set up to date soon, and perhaps to revive the website, as the world really is looking at America now, incredulous and horrified. But our political system has been a model, especially for Latin America, and this article (click to download the PDFs) explains the US system and its history as a model. The second article is about visitors’ views of the United States from its earliest years. I particularly like the quote about roast beef and socialism. Is Bernie a vegetarian?
