The author of Modern Times and A History of the Jews offers this remarkable new American history, a reinterpretation of the nation's evolution from the first settlements to the Clinton administration. It covers every aspect of U.S. history—politics; business and economics; art, literature, and science; society and customs; complex traditions and religious beliefs—and is told through the stories of the men and women who shaped and led the nation and the people who collectively created its unique character, as well as Johnson's engrossing narrative. "The book has new and often trenchant things to say about every aspect and period of America's past," says Johnson, "and I do not seek, as some historians do, to conceal my opinions." A provocative interpretation of American history brought to life through individuals, events, themes, and issues.
