American Exceptionism: The View from The Economist
Following the tragedy of 9/11 and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, there is growing perception in Europe and elsewhere that America sees itself as distinct and able to play by its own rules on the world stage. Does 'American exceptionism' really exist? Does this sentiment reflect policy differences or a clash of fundamental values? What are the implications for the trans-Atlantic rift over Iraq and a host of other issues? How should Americans try to sort out the issues and, more importantly, what should be done? Plan now to hear Julie Sell, the Midwest Correspondent for The Economist, a leading international current-affairs magazine. She covers a wide range of political, social and business issues at the regional and national levels.
