Underdogma by Michael Prell

In Underdogma:  How America’s Enemies Use Our Love for the Underdog to Trash American Power (Dallas:  BenBella Books, 2011), Michael Prell defines underdogma as “the belief that those who have less power are virtuous and noble–because they have less power–and the belief that those who have more power are to be scorned–because they have more power” (11).

I think Prell’s theory provides at least a partial explanation for why America’s internal and external enemies hate America.
