Johns Hopkins University Press, 2006


"A provocative treatise about the nature of modern life ... appealing because of its breadth ofdetail, drawing on the author's two decades in Japan, Spain, France, Austria, and Mexico."

- Prof. Eric Fisher, Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo, in The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer


" intriguing analysis of the influence of American technology and culture on foreign societies... . In his deconstruction of the myth of global Americanization [Marling] argues that in actuality the reaching effects of the U.S. are less than one might think from reading popular accounts - and he backs his contention with proof.
