Whether sophisticated business leaders, starry-eyed teenagers, or Islamic fundamentalists, his subjects were both admiring and uneasy about the United States, enchanted yet bewildered, appalled yet envious. Exploring such paradoxes, Hertsgaard exposes truths that force natives and outsiders alike to see America with fresh eyes.
