Ziauddin Sardar and Merryl Wyn Davies follow their bestseller 'Why Do People Hate America?' with a new title that examines the myths that sustain American life, from those of the Founding Fathers to those manufactured by the Hollywood dream factory. Fear, ignorance, nationalism, war and celebrity loom large. Now that the American Dream has become a global nightmare, understanding the laws of American life should be essential for us all.
