History of Anti-Americanism

An excellent essay on the literary history of European anti-Americanism (Via three percent). It is quite long but really worth reading in full. It is actually an English translation of an original essay in Danish.

Meanwhile, don't expect articles about Europhobia in American media. Instead, we get this inanity in the Time magazine. I am surprised why someone would bother trying to answer the charges but that didn't stop Bernard-Henri Levy claiming that "American talk of the death of French culture says more about them than us."
