Editorial Reviews

Review

"Woodard offers a fascinating way to parse American (writ large) politics and history in this excellent book." ―Kirkus (starred review)

"Woodard explains away partisanship in American Nations... which makes the provocative claim that our culture wars are inevitable.  North America was settled by groups with distinct political and religious value--and we haven't had a moment's peace since." -- Publishers Weekly (Fall 2011 "Top Ten Politics" pick)

"A smart read that feels particularly timely now, when so many would claim a mythically unified "Founding Fathers'' as their political ancestors." -- Boston Globe

"A fascinating new take on our history" -- The Christian Science Monitor

"For people interested in American history and sociology, "American Nations" demands reading." -- St.Louis Post-Dispatch


"[In] offering us a way to better understand the forces at play in the rumpus room of current American politics, Colin Woodard has scored a true triumph" -- The Daily Beast / Newsweek

"Woodard makes a worthwhile contribution by offering an accessible, well-researched analysis with appeal to both casual and scholarly readers." -- Library Journal

"[American Nations'] compelling explanations and apt descriptions will fascinate anyone with an interest in politics, regional culture, or history" -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[A] compelling and informative attempt to make sense of the regional divides in North America in general and this country in particular....Woodard provides a bracing corrective to an accepted national narrative that too often overlooks regional variations to tell a simpler and more reassuring story. " -- The Washington Post
