RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 176894602 LA English T1 What is America? : a short history of the new world order A1 Wright, Ronald,, PB Da Capo Press PP Philadelphia, PA YR 2008 SN 9780786720972 0786720972 AB "Ronald Wright shows how the New World created the modern world - and how the New World now threatens to undo it all. He lifts the veil on our advanced society to reveal the deeply archaic forces that are undermining it: religious extremism, militarism, and an unshakable faith in often-dangerous ideals like endless progress, unfettered capitalism, and a universal mission." "What is America? is a passionate - and essential - look at a thoroughly puzzling, and thoroughly troubling, time."--Jacket.
