Summary "To understand why the world has turned against the United States, the Pew Research Center, under the leadership of Andrew Kohut, has undertaken a series of global opinion surveys - more than 91,000 respondents in fifty nations - to discover how the world views America and its people. In America Against the World, Kohut and Bruce Stokes unveil the results of these surveys, looking at the role played by U.S. attitudes and values in the dynamic rise of anti-Americanism."--BOOK JACKET
