Only if Europeans-especially the English-have a real understanding of America, will they be able to teach Americans to conduct themselves in the manner English gentlemen thought other Englishmen should conduct themselves, when England was the leading Power in the world. A classic tongue-in-cheek view of the American. What makes Americans in Glasshouses worth reading after sixty years is that it’s still a good old-fashioned hoot!
