Product Details

Praise

"Mr. Boorstin tells the story of the invention of a new democratic culture and the reorientation of the national character through countless little revolutions in economy, technology, and social rearrangements … Illuminated by reflections that are original, judicious and sagacious…" — Henry Steele Commager

"A huge, fascinating omnibus of a book … an exhilarating adventure that carries us along the highways and byways of a national history like no other."

— John K. Hutchens Book-of-the-Month-Club News

"I have learned a great deal about the USA from Professor Boorstin’s new book. He knows this country of ours as few historians know it … I read his book with delight and gratitude."

— Saul Bellow
