Lecture Description

Many Americans see a hostile world plagued by “anti-Americanism.” Experts in and out of government insist that “anti-Americanism” comes from foreigners who are envious or unhappy about America’s modern society and democratic nature. This lecture shows how the concept of “anti-Americanism” has been misused for more than 200 years to stifle domestic dissent and dismiss foreign criticism, damaging U.S. interests from the nineteenth century to Vietnam and the twenty-first century wars in the Middle East.
