By Antônio Pedro Tota

Quem são os verdadeiros americanos? Sofisticados moradores de Nova York ou jecas da "América profunda"? Intelectuais vencedores do prêmio Nobel ou truculentos senhores da guerra? Para uns, os Estados Unidos da América são um paradigma da modernidade, para outros, um monstro tentacular imperialista. Gostemos ou não, os americanos são importantes. E muito. Todos os dias eles bombardeiam o mundo com filmes, séries de television, hambúrgueres e Coca-Cola. Suas músicas são ouvidas em todos os continentes. Seus ícones transformaram-se em símbolos mundiais e o inglês é uma espécie de língua franca common. Qual a origem da autoconfiança e soberba dos americanos? E mais: como esse gigantesco vizinho do norte se tornou o que é, rico e poderoso? Com texto denso, brilhante e provocativo, o historiador Antonio Pedro Tota rastreia origens, costumes e paradoxos desse povo, desde o início até a eleição do primeiro presidente negro. Fala também de expansionismo, anos dourados, guerras, escândalos, jazz, cinema e muito mais. Leitura fascinante.
