Anti-Americanism by Jean-François Revel( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the 9/11 attack on the United States, the brief moment of global sympathy for America soon began giving way to blame. Angered by these assaults on a nation he knows and admires, the distinguished French intellectual Jean-Francois Revel has come to America's defense in Anti-Americanism, a book that (paradoxically, given his country's especially vehement attacks on the U.S. and its policies) spent several weeks late last year on top of France's bestseller list." "Revel sees much anti-Americanism simply as anticapitalism in disguise on the part of those - in Europe and the rest of the world - who are still committed to doctrines that, at heart, are illiberal and even totalitarian. In probing the origins of the notion that America is the source of all evil, he shows how these charges ultimately stem from weakness and envy on the part of those who make them and are a neurotic effort to find an easy explanation for Europe's own loss of status in the post-war era."--Jacket
The crisis of the Arab intellectual : traditionalism or historicism? by Abdallah Laroui( Book )

9 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book intends to review the meaning of contemporary in Arab intellectual history. It presents a classification of four periods in modern Arab intellectual history; they are the following: 1) Nahda: the great Arab renaissance period, from 1850 to 1914. The Nahda sought through translation and vulgarization to assimilate the great achievements of modern European civilization; 2) the period between the two wars characterized by the the development of thoughts which played a leading role in social movements, especially in nationalist movements; 3) the period the Arab nationalist experiments on the unionist ideology; and 4) the period of moral and political crisis after the defeat in the 1967 War. The central thesis of this book is that the concept of history - a concept playing a capital role in modern thought - is in fact peripheral to all the ideologies that have dominated the Arab world till now
Anti-Americanism by Jean François Revel( Recording )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the 9/11 attack on the United States, the brief moment of global sympathy for America soon began giving way to blame. In France and other quarters of Europe, and elsewhere in the world, it was said that the Americans had brought this violence upon themselves. The United States was a "cowboy" nation disinclined to abide by the will of the United Nations and other multilateral institutions and bent on pursuing its objectives at any cost. It was the "hyperpower" whose corporations manipulated world markets and whose riches were acquired at the price of Third World impoverishment. No wonder it had been attacked! Angered by these assaults on a nation he knows and admires, French intellectual Jean-Francois Revel has come to America's defense in Anti-Americanism
