Description
Conducting discourse analysis of European reactions to the 1898 Spanish-American War and the contemporary "War on Terror," the author argues that at the root of the European hostility to US actions in both cases was or is the idea that America was straying from the ideals that Europe believed it represented, that the US in other words was undermining Europe's "American Dream." The danger of this, he contends, is that Europe's "American Dream" has been a significant source of US power in the world in that it caused Europeans to aspire to be Washington's partner in world affairs. The loss of that dream will lead instead to a European bid for rivalry. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
