America views itself as a nation inhabiting a promised land 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, Amerikkka traces the historical and ideological patterns behind America's sense of itself. In its examination of America's chosenness , the book ranges across the doctrine of the rights of man in the 18th and 19th centuries, the role of America in the twentieth century as global policeman , and the enforcement of neo-colonial relations over the third world . The volume argues for a vision of global relations between peoples based on justice and mutuality, rather than hegemonic dominance.
