Nancy Snow's provocative book tackles the government's manipulation of the term "anti-American" and other propaganda techniques, connecting them to the attempts of U.S. administrations and media-past and present-to project a better U.S. image rather than address the issues behind why the country's image is so poor. If America cares what others think, Snow argues, it needs to get over itself as the "number-one country." The government needs to spend less time diverting public attention and more time enlisting citizens to help improve foreign relations. And the public needs to exercise its democratic right to dissent, rather than letting the government or the media halt foreign policy debates with labels, propaganda, and arrogant rhetoric.
