Beschreibung:

The essays in The Only Super Power deal with present day American Society_its problems, critiques, and perceptions at home and abroad_with special reference to mass culture, multiculturalism, and radical Islam. Other items examine the aftermath of and continued responses to the fall of Soviet communism and the remaining communist systems.
In The Only Superpower: Reflections on Strength, Weakness, and Anti-Americanism, Paul Hollander examines anti-Americanism (including the relationship between the foreign and domestic varieties), American culture (especially mass culture), the lingering political and cultural influences of the 1960s, and the controversial relationship between the realms of the personal and the political. He also revisits the part played by hatred, and especially the scapegoating impulse, in social and political conflicts. The essays range widely, from Michael Moore's political celebrity, the American love for SUVs, and getting old in America to Islamic fanaticism and the aftermath of the fall of Eastern European communist systems.
