Not Like Us Book Review In his book; Not Like Us , Richard Pells strives to enlighten the reader in regards to the relationship between Europe and the United States in the twentieth century. Pells contends that culture was the most important aspect of transfer between the two entities, including during the time period of the Cold War. He also holds that while both sides were influenced by each other, Europe was as a whole more heavily influenced by the influx of “American” culture. Although while reading the book it was hard to ignore that Pells hints that the “Americanized” culture was that born out of progress and industrialization, which were originally European ideals, borrowed by the American. Not Like Us gives the reader a detailed account of the different vehicles employed by Europe and America to share culture during the twentieth century. It also shows the methods used by European powers to resist the seemingly inevitable “Americanization” of their societies; especially the French, who continue to fight impending globalization.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
