Finally, a book for people who were never taught to love history. The characters materialize as though from fiction, yet everything is true. Readers who want to understand America's dilemmas today should start here.

As they did in an earlier version of this splendid book, John Broesamle and Anthony Arthur explode the myth that history is boring. Twelve Great Clashes that Have Shaped Modern America explores and exposes the dramatic conflicts that have shaped American history. Unlike so many politically imbalanced books, this volume goes to great pains to present both sides of a confrontation. The book challenges those on the left and right to reconsider their beliefs and conclusions. In chapter after chapter, idealists confront realists-ideas bang into ideas with breakneck speed and lasting consequences. The book's final chapter examines the Bush/Kerry election, and does so with some surprising observations. While both serious and casual students of history will enjoy this book, AMERICANS will benefit from a read through these beautifully written pages. Twelve Great Clashes is history come to life-with vibrancy and passion.
