Praise

“Boorstins achievement is to compel us to see again, ranged in order, the whole mass of attitudes and mechanisms that arise from American difference, and to display his material so abundantly and ingeniously that we see aspects of the nations’ past as if for the first time.” —Marcus Cunliffe, Book Week

“This is the history of a nation ‘beginning again and again, under men’s very eyes. I can only repeat that this is a fine book—controversial certainly, but a courageous, learned and most exciting work.” —George Dangerfield, The New York Times Book Review

“This exceptionally good book . . .  abounds in concrete, entertaining details, and in bright, original ideas about those fascinating people, us.” —The New Yorker
