[It also] provides a contemporary view of the central themes and pre-occupations of American life. Ideals such as the commitment to liberty, equality and material progress are fully examined and new light is shed on the sometimes contradictory ways in which these ideals have informed the nation's history and culture. [This] is essential reading for all students of American history, literature and politics. The general reader, too, will find much of interest in this exploration of the diverse factors that have shaped - and continue to shape - the America we think we know today. -Back cover."@en ;
