Mark Hertsgaard On The World's Love/hate Relationship With America
Why has much of the world's regard for America diminished in the last few years? In this program, Bill Moyers talks with journalist and author Mark Hertsgaard, who traveled the globe gauging foreigners' ambivalence towards the United States. He shares his findings, published in his new book, The Eagle's Shadow: Why America Fascinates and Infuriates the World, and comments on how America's role is changing, especially in the wake of September 11th. He discusses key U.S. environmental and foreign policy decisions that have proven divisive of the international community, as well as a perceived lack of difference between globalization and Americanization.
