Format: Paperback
Sometimes Americans feel so divided. I was stunned to learn after reading Baker's book that we have WAY more in common than we realize! He has found 10 common traits we all share...regardless of race, nationality, creed or even political affiliation. Baker's book is steeped in history, supported by solid research and written in a easy-to-read style. He even has discussion questions at the end of each chapter perfect for self-reflection or a group or school discussion. This is a must read for ALL Americans. Let's find out how we are more alike than different!! Now I know why I become emotional at parades!

Enough of listening to the cable pundits! Finally someone who has focused on what we agree on! Dr. Baker has taken a different route and actually researched the deeply held core values we SHARE. Not surprisingly, they can tug at each other as we hold them in balance.
This book can inform those in business seeking to understand the greater culture we are a part of, those looking for common ground after the evening news, and those who believe values are at the root of our behavior.
I would strongly recommend that you read this book and join in what Dr. Baker calls the “civil dialogue.” You will not be sorry.

Review of Wayne Baker’s “United America”
By Duncan Newcomer
This book is a tool and a tool-kit. As a tool it can promote dialogue across political divides because it starts with the blockbusting news from the social sciences that there are ten underlying values that Americans hold dear, values that can hold America together. As a tool-kit it offers a treasure chest (to extend the image) of apt historical background, many little-known intriguing facts, unusual and significant quotes from great Americans and great American documents, uplifting samples of blogger opinions, relevant and pointed questions, (we’re not done yet) fascinating takes on pop culture, heart-warming anecdotes, all under-scored with a broad array of highlights from a variety of contemporary academic writers. That is a full kit.
The book is valuable in the very same way that the ten core American values are valuable—that is to say that regardless of your gender, age, income, race, religion, or politics you can find this book inspiring you to live up to the values you will recognize as your own, and can begin to believe belong to others as well. You may not have thought the people on the other side of your fence shared those values with you, but you can begin to believe it.
If you believe, as many do, that a one-side media and narrow-based politicians have high-jacked our political world you’ll find growing comfort in this book. If you want motivation for greater harmony you will find that also in this book as you read the facts of just how far we all are from living up to the values we share.
This handy little book belongs in lots of college and high school class rooms, in every campaign manager’s brief case, and in thousands of small group discussions. It belongs in Congress.
