Jag hade träffat dem vid flera tillfällen och jag har en son som föddes 1991 vars uppväxt jag följt på nära håll. Varför denna otroliga skillnad? Kunde det vara Internet, och i så fall, varför? Vad är det som gör att vi har en generation som har så hög empatiförmåga?

When writing a book, an author often has the sensation of being surrounded by that topic. In the case of anti-Americanism that experience was particularly strong. As the 21st century began it seemed as if the amount of criticism the United States was receiving around the world was matched only by the quantity of passionate debate about why this was happening.

The title was chosen in great sincerity because the theme here is to explain how the region’s modern history really is a tragedy.’ Terrible mistakes were made; the wrong roads were chosen.

And yet alongside all of these disasters was a certainty of correctness and a violent rejection of even considering what had gone wrong.
