America through Foreign Eyes

Jorge G. Castañeda

  • Provides a perspective from a foreign scholar who has lived, studied, worked and dealt with America for half a century, notably as a former Foreign Minister of Mexico
  • Argues that Americans should care what foreigners think about the United States now that globalization has made Americans care more than ever about what foreigners do
  • Proposes that, since Trump's election 2016, American politics resemble those of Europe, Latin America, and parts of Asia more than at any earlier point in the nation's history
  • Gives due attention to issues of American's self-professed exceptionalism and the American conformity so often observed by outsiders
