Not recommended reading for thin-skinned patriots; however, a great resource for academic, public, and high-school libraries." --Booklist "The editors have made an exceptional effort to make subjects easy to find.... A valuable resource for analysts looking for background information; upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students looking for issues on which to conduct research; and general users trying to understand the US's place in the world.

    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. The first two volumes consist of national surveys and histories, while the third consists of expert-written articles on specific themes in US foreign relations.
