America views itself as a nation inhabiting a "e;promised land"e; and enjoying a favoured relation with God. This view of unique election has been coupled with racial exclusivism and the marginalization of non-white citizens.America, Amerikkkaa traces the historical and ideological patterns behind America's sense of itself. In its examination of America's "e;chosenness"e;, the book ranges across the doctrine of the "e;rights of man"e; in the 18th and 19th centuries, the role of America in the twentieth century as "e;global policeman"e;, and the enforcement of neo-colonial relations over the "e;third world"e;. The volume argues for a vision of global relations between peoples based on justice and mutuality, rather than hegemonic dominance.
