Americans traveling in Europe are often greeted with the familiar sight of American fast-food restaurants, television shows, and cultural icons such as Michael Jordan. Much has been written about American cultural influences on the rest of the world, but in Not Like Us, the eminent historian Richard Pells examines the more subtle and intriguing interplay between America and Europe in the decades since the end of World War II. In a masterful analysis of the past fifty years, Pells describes how the cultures on each side of the Atlantic have transformed one another, and he reveals the reasons why Europeans never become truly "Americanized" and why it is a good thing they haven't.
