Format: Paperback
I had to read Wilson's book along with John Kingdon's America the Unusual for a politics writing class. Wilson's book contrasted Kingdon's and I found that Wilson did not support his eventual claim that America is different but not unique. However, I did have to write and entire semester project on American exceptionalism and found Wilson's book to give me a jumping off point. He is thoughtful in his book yet fails to make his point at the end. I give him credit for many examples, graphs, and statistics, however, it's just not enough. Read this book only if you have to, or if it is useful to a topic of American exceptionalism. However, this book does not fullfill it's ultimate claim.

Wilson's book is concise and extremely useful if you are trying to come up with coherent arguments against the theory of American Exceptionalism.
