By reviewing the history of America, we will agnise that American exceptionalism is stemming in American hasty past times. In 1630, John Winthrop politician of Massachusetts Bay colony, in the Tea Party brought an Idea of "City upon a hill" (Ferrie, 2005; 2). Since consequently America has been delimited as a individual estate for Americans which unmoving this mental object exists. That is why a few countries close to France are ambiguous Globalization because they well thought out it as Americanization.

What will develop in the era of Globalization and station current theories? Will American exceptionalism be vulnerable by Globalization and is Globalization Americanization?
In this nonfiction I will statement these questions and the object I will talked around Americanization is that I think this occupancy is a seam linking American exceptionalism and Globalization.

American exceptionalism is a historical set phrase that was freshman used by Alexis de Tocqueville in 1831. Basically it refers to a perception that United States is qualitatively high-performance to another mature nations for its "unique origin, national credo, historic process and typical semipolitical and ceremonial institutions" (Wikipedia www page, 2006).

Americanization is the occupancy in use for the opinion the United States of America has on the culture of new countries, substituting their society with American society. When it is encountered voluntarily has positive intension and time is half-heartedly has pessimistic pregnant (wikipedia www page, 2006). Americanization truly is a gordian language unit in ultramodern perceptiveness pointer and indicates two issues:

1.cultural criticism

2.International social relation debates (Biltereyst, 2002; 4);
Featherstone defined globalisation and referred it to:

1.An intensified worldwide concentration of the world

2.Our going up awake of the planetary ( Barker, 2000; 167)

Globalization is recognised by quantity of planetary communications (such as World Wide Web, telephone, advertisements, TV, visual communication CDs and etc) and reading of them. Since 1970 we have witnessed an era of expedited globalisation.

Americans set themselves more impressively than the race in remaining democracies. About 71% of Americans are "very proud" of aware in America. This is by the way that one and only 38 % of French and 21 % of Germans and Japanese are respected of animate in their own countries (Wilson, 2006; 1). Three-froths of Americans judge that dissemination American society in a circle the global is a good enough conception but retributory one-forth of French deem the selfsame astir French philosophy. By this succinct datum we can know the understanding of American exceptionalism among Americans. Even George Bush major in January 29th 1991 said:" we are American; we have imaginative enterprise to do the tricky employment of state and once we do, freedom works" (Sellevold, 2002, 46).

About Globalization, Herbert Schiller indicated that the intercontinental interface industries are controlled by US-controlled corporations (cited by barker, 2000; 171) and roughly two-third of international cinema are American (Zonis, 1999; 8). As we know Coco Cola, Mac Donald, Jeans, KFS restaurants which are broad broadcast in a circle the global are American Originally. Arthur Koestler in his narrative "The Lotus and the Robot" defined Americanization as cocos nucifera formation (wikipedia WWW page, 2006).

Some countries like-minded France are opponent Globalization for they hate Americanization and same to preserve their French positioning .Jose' bove' was the primary French who anti Mac Donald (Felsing, 1999; 8).Americanization has a Fear of vulgarity, commercialization, mass mediated and condition for the countries who are Anti-Americanist like France and every Middle Eastern Muslim countries like Iran (Biltereyst, 2002; 1). Fear of uniform nation of America is the apology of this dislike. But by start of Globalization and situation fashionable theories American civilization mislaid its highlighted contact. The idea of send off body and station ultramodern era exchanged and reduced arguments of American culture. Giddens in 1999 brought a nice definition of Globalization and Americanization. He believed that ethnic group who are out of Europe and North America see globalization as assimilation or Americanization (Biltereyst, 2002; 3).

I deem Globalization is not Americanization necessarily. Because we do have heaps global products which are embedding in opposite people's enthusiasm panache which are not American similar Toyota (Japan), Clothes (china), Nokia compartment phones (Finland) or Pizza (Italy), do we categorize it as Japanezation or Chinization or Finlandization or Italization?

Miller likewise said that Hollywood is planetary because it is adapting itself to Global changes to have more upper hand about the planetary (Biltereyst, 2002; 9). Generally, globalisation is not monolithic one way outpouring from westward to the balance (Barker, 2000; 173). Each res publica has a part in this process, the much powerfulness your have the much changes you will label in the world. We have seen impacts of non-western concept on the westbound as fit such as:

1.Spreading spirituality of Islam in the worldwide.

2.Exportation of telenovelas from Latin American countries to another surroundings.

3.Sale of ancestral foods and cloths.

As a Conclusion, I don't want to slight the power of American civilization in the global but I devise Globalization will Perl weight of American superiority and in any cases will do the very in the order of American exceptionalism but this is lately in any levels. It will not scotch the undamaged part. Because I imagine world products will change state localized in quite a few degrees to be able to be used in respectively territorial division so American exceptionalism which is fixed in those products will be low on fire. Like censorship of pornographic environment of Hollywood films in Iran or even version can sometimes shift the encoded meanings in the picture. The way we use internet can not precisely be the self as Latin American's use. Although the system are the same, we follow distinct purposes. I description it as localization of the worldwide so during the location function quite a lot of encoded meanings approaching American exceptionalism will slack their innovative functions.
