Description
A superpower without parallel since the British Empire, the United States is a source of incessant fascination to the rest of the world. Absurdly rich, alarmingly volatile, the nation inspires both fear and envy. How They See Us truly celebrates a diverse set of vantage points and voices. These trenchant essays constitute a primer of international literature, an aid to self-criticism for America and, more frequently than one would expect, an invitation to celebrate the country's virtues.
