Abstract:

There is something deeply wrong with America. The American dream has become a global nightmare from which we all need to awake as quickly as possible. In this hard-hitting sequel to their best-selling Why Do People Hate America?, Ziauddin Sardar and Merryl Wyn Davies explore the myths that sustain America's belief in itself, and the global consequences to which these myths lead. Ranging from the vision of the Founding Fathers to the myth-making machine of Hollywood, the book investigates the persistent dream in which America is determined to live, and the dangerous 'sleep of reason' nece.
