Alec MacGillis…a compelling and informative attempt to make sense of the regional divides in North America in general and this country in particular. This may seem like well-marked territory…But Woodard sets his political geography apart by delving deep into history, building on the insights of David Hackett Fischer's Albion's Seed, a 1989 analysis of the four "British folkways" in America, to demonstrate that trends in contemporary political behavior can be traced back to well before the country's founding. Woodard provides a bracing corrective to an accepted national narrative that too often overlooks regional variations to tell a simpler and more reassuring story.
