This essay introduces the book, Global Perspectives on the United States, including it dynamic structure and its Second and Third Looks. It focuses on multiple meanings of, and approaches to, notions of Americanism, pro-Americanism, anti-Americanism, and even Americanization. Included in this essay are examples of discursive and polling data and practices in numerous countries around the world. It provides an analytic framework to much of the talk on anti-Americanism that exists both inside and outside the U.S., and makes an argument that a great deal of it is misleading.

Keywords:   criticism, Americanization, anti-Americanism, pro-Americanism, popular attitudes toward the United States, polls, media
