Summary:
How has America, with its many ethnic, class, and ideological divisions, allowed divergent groups to 'hang together' as Americans? This book explores the ways in which Americans have conceived of a national identity and demonstrates that an appreciation of America's kaleidoscopic diversity can be reconciled with an affirmation of its common national culture.
