Publishers Description: "This complex catalogue of impressions - good, bad, but never indifferent - is the departure point for a short, pointed essay in the tradition of Common Sense and Culture of Complaint. How can the world's most open society be so proud of its founding ideals yet so inconsistent in applying them? So loved for its pop culture but so resented for its high-handedness? Exploring such paradoxes, Hertsgaard exposes uplifting and uncomfortable truths that force natives and foreigners alike to see America with fresh eyes." ""Like it or not, America is the future," a European tells Hertsgaard. In a world growing more American by the day, The Eagle's Shadow is a major statement about and to the place (and people) everyone discusses but few understand."--BOOK JACKET.
