This study examines the German perception of America in postwar works of prose, drama, and non-fiction. In viewing works by Brecht, Frisch, Koeppen, Weiss, and others, against the traditional utopian picture of America popularized in the nineteenth century, Professor Cobbs shows how a critical image of the USA has evolved in response to America's economic and social structure. Particular emphasis is given to America's postwar role in world power politics.
