It is the reaction of one old friend to another when the latter is acting wholly unreasonably and unacceptably’ (Kilfoyle, 2003). Disentangling legitimate criticism from generalized hostility is very difficult. Yet it is undeniable that generalized, unreflective hostility to the US does exist, and that it was very much in evidence around the time of the Bush visit. As good an effort as any to define ‘antiAmericanism’ is that attempted by Barry and Joyce Colp Rubin (2004, ix). They contend that anti-Americanism exhibits one or more of the following characteristics: ‘antagonism to the United States that is systemic, seeing it as completely and inevitably evil’; any ‘view that greatly exaggerates America’s shortcomings’; the ‘deliberate misrepresentation of the nature or policies of the United States for political purposes’; and ‘misrepresentation of American society, policies, or goals which falsely portrays them as ridiculous or malevolent’.
In 1994, 54 per cent of Americans saw the UK as a ‘very valuable ally’. France achieved a score of 19, Germany 15 and Japan 9 (The Gallup Poll, 1990, 98; 1997, 174; 1995, 93). British support for the post-9/11 War on Terror, and especially participation in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, was reflected in clear pro-British (and decidedly anti-French) sentiment in subsequent polling. Over the years, Gallup has also conducted occasional polls in the US which touch on Anglo-American relations in specific or quirky ways.
At least two major international surveys in the 1990s suggested that Americans were high among the most religious people in the world, with depth and breadth of religious belief exceeding those of even countries such as Ireland and Poland, much less Britain (Huntington, 2005, 90). Writing in the mid-1990s, Featherstone and Ginsberg concluded that public attitudes in Western Europe were converging, but that transatlantic differences remained. It was not so much that the US and Western Europe were ‘growing apart, as that their increasingly close economic relationship is serving to expose, and even magnify, their historic domestic differences’ (Featherstone and Ginsberg, 1996, 233).
