BOOK EXCERPT:

The United States was a unique country founded on the unique concept that all are created equal and each person was given natural rights by the Creator including life, liberty, and property or the pursuit of happiness. The role of government would be to protect these rights so they were never abridged in any way. Another vision for citizens of the United States is that a primary role of government would be to provide entitlements to its citizens. These entitlements would be considered rights and the natuaral rights, when considered to be discriminatory in any manner, would be abridged or even eliminated. Thses two visions are clashing. The outcome for both visions is already known. What is not known is which vision will prevail.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The common theme of these essays is the evolution of American cultural identities from a diverse colonial inheritance. Changing representations of what it means to be 'American' are assumed to be the consequence of shifting cross-cultural or transatlantic pressures. Since 1492 the experience of America has continually been interpreted both for and by Europeans; the colonial past constituting the prime source of introspective energies and self-conscious representations for all Americans. The collection is divided into two sections, juxtaposing colonial negotiations with 'native' Americans and the modern self-perceptions of 'native-born' Americans. The focus of the early part of the book is the vision of America that was formed through the process of colonization - with its attendant impact upon wildlife, landscapes and indigenous peoples - a vision registered in visual images and written records, as well as Western philosophical, ethnographical and aesthetic ideals.

Antologi. Indeholder en undersøgelse af de transatlantiske forbindelser siden terrorangrebene d. 11. september 2001 i USA samt den efterfølgende krig i Irak. Bogen søger at identificere de grupper, som skaber politiken og offentlighedens opfattelse af relationerne på begge sideraf Atlanten. Ligeledes forsøger den at spore oprindelsen til den opståede splid efter 11.september, samt at belyse de nuværende og fremtidige udfordringer til de bilaterale relationer og forholdet generelt mellem USA og Europa. Perspektiverne belyses ved fem europæiske bidragydere med fokus primært på England, Frankrig, Tyskland, Italien og Rusland og suppleret med tre amerikanske bidragydere.

BOOK EXCERPT:

When the Europeans first arrived in America, they had a number of preconceptions, prejudices, expectations and hopes about what life in the New World would be like. This book examines the different visions and representations of America conveyed in the writings of Spanish conquistador Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca and the Pilgrim leader William Bradford, taking both writers within their respective literary and historical contexts. Anthologies of American literature have consistently ignored Spanish-language achievements on the grounds of a restrictive interpretation of American literature based on linguistic boundaries. Consequently, Spanish-language texts such as Cabeza de Vaca's or the account by the Hidalgo de Elvas, to name but two examples, have been marginalized in the narrative of American literary history. In seeking to redress this neglect, Galisteo contributes to scholarship which seeks to analyze Early America as a whole, including not only Anglo American perspectives but also the Spanish American aspect of the colonization process.
