"The rooftop terrace at New York's Empire Hotel was a fitting location for the launch party of ABC News correspondent Jim Sciutto's new book, "Against US." Through stunning interviews and a riveting narrative, Sciutto reports on the growing pan-Arab hatred toward Western imperialism. Scuitto, who's been reporting on the subject for the last six years, tells TVNewser, "It's hard not to know your nationality when you're in that part of the world. There's a personal aspect in this. As an American, I like my country. I get worried when it is so hated and so resented," he says."
