Editorial Reviews


"These essays sharpen and enliven the important debate about the character of American nationalism and its historic foundations. - David Hollinger, University of California, Berkeley"


This collection of superb essays addresses how Americans and their foreign observers have struggled to come to terms with the 'ought's and 'is's of being an American. They are provocative in the best sense of the word.--Joyce Appleby, University of California, Los Angeles
