About the Book

The first and only conservative history of the United States-from the author ofModern Times andA History of the Jews-offers a challenging and lucid look at our nation from the first colonies to the 1996 elections.-The creation of the United States is the greatest of all human adventures,' writes Johnson, and this work is a reinterpretation of every aspect of American history-its politics and economics; its art, literature, and science; its religious beliefs. Johnson tells the story in terms of the outstanding men and women who personally shaped and led the nation and also the ordinary people who have given the country its practical idealism and strength.aThis provocative portrayal of the -Great American Experiment' will be widely discussed and debated as it explores the relevant political and moral issues still shaping the nation today.
