The author describes America as seen from Europe where she lived for six years, during a decade of tumultuous events. By relating past events, such as the Vietnam War, civil rights, the assassination of a president, we see varied reactions both at home and abroad. The principal antagonist of America's policies was French President Charles de Gaulle, our former ally, raising the spectre of anti-Americanism overseas, underscoring his claim that nations have neither friends nor enemies, only interests. An Epilogue compares events to the present to see what has changed-or not-and if we ever learn from history. Twenty-five international, political cartoons by the best artists from America, England, France, and Lebanon give rare interpretations of events, proving Winston Churchill's maxim that cartoons are a good way of learning history.
