In Search of Pro Americanism?
Posted August 22,2005: The press has lately been full of stories decrying the loss of good will that the United States has suffered around the world, and bemoaning the decline in "pro Americanism" since the high point immediately after September 11, 2001. Indeed, a recent poll conducted by the University of Maryland and an outside polling firm provides evidence that public opinion around the world is starting to assume a new, 21st century configuration that reflects an increase in respect and admiration for European and Chinese influence in global affairs and, presumably, a decrease in admiration of the United States.
