Rich and diverse, America's history can nonetheless be understood in the context of several ideals that have clashed and evolved throughout the past few centuries. Best known for his National Book Award-winning Andrew Jackson trilogy, Robert Remini offers an accessible and lively guided tour of U.S. history, providing thoughtful if opinionated views on the migration of Native Americans, the founding of the Republic, the struggle over slavery, the emergence of the United States as a world power, and the battle against international terrorism.
"Wise, eloquent, and authoritative…. A sprightly tour of the nation's lives and times."—Jon Meacham
