Anti-Americanism remains one of the few acceptable forms of prejudice. Meanwhile, the process of what is still called Americanization continues unabated. But what does Americanization actually mean? What are the characteristics of Anti-Americanism? And what has made America both a wishful dream and a nightmare since the European discovery of the New World? One way of untangling this complex dynamic involves looking at the scholarship on Anti-Americanism and what it says about America and Europe as a part of a distinctly European discursive construct made up of imaginaries and projections and intended above all to make sense of Europe’s place in the world today.
