    It's been hard to get through, but it's a college text for a Modern European History class, so I shouldn't be surprised. It is fascinating, especially since my knowledge of European history is not the greatest. It got a lot more interesting later on when it was in more modern times and dealing more with media and Hollywood. A lot of it was pretty fascinating and history I did not know. Having lived in Europe for awhile myself made it more interesting as well! I would recommend it to anyone who i It's been hard to get through, but it's a college text for a Modern European History class, so I shouldn't be surprised.

    Pells is a fairly engaging writer, if at time a bit categorical, and not such an adventurous writer. He very clearly states the relationships between American and European culture, with an eye towards the historical bases of these relationships. The text could use slightly more theoretical underpinnings.

    this book had the unfortunate distinction of being our group selection AFTER Gravity's Rainbow. Largely anecdotal, this anticipate's T.R. Reid's United Stes of Europe and suffers from the same flaws. My friends and I muddled through such, though, to be fair, it isn't the book's fault. this book had the unfortunate distinction of being our group selection AFTER Gravity's Rainbow.

    It took some time, but was well worth it. For someone interested in American Studies it is a should read. I love all of the misconceptions we have about each other.

    About the ever lasting love/hate relationship between the Old and the New continents. Interesting.

    Easy read. Good history. Not too heavy on promoting the ideas of 'US dominance' in a post war world. Easy read. Good history. Not too heavy on promoting the ideas of 'US dominance' in a post war world.
