Summary
  • "This volume explores, for the first time and in a comparative manner, the role American culture and anti-Americanism play in eleven representative European countries. These countries include major powers - Great Britain, France, (West) Germany, Russia/Soviet Union, and Italy - as well as smaller countries - Austria, Denmark, Greece, Spain, Sweden, and Poland. Contributors to the volume, all of them highly respected experts in their field, were asked to address the following four topics: the role of American public diplomacy, the transfer of American "high culture," the impact of "popular culture" ranging from Hollywood movies and TV to pop music and life-style issues, and the country-specific features and history of anti-Americanism
  • The volume is enhanced by a substantial introduction by the editor, which looks both at the general "culture clash" between the United States and Europe and at adaptations and blending processes that occurred in individual countries after 1945"--Jacket
