What is America? PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

What is America? free pdf The USA is now the world's lone superpower, whose deeds could make or break this century. For better and worse, America has Americanised the world. How did a marginal frontier society, in a mere two centuries, become the de facto ruler of the world? Why do America's great achievements in democracy, prosperity and civil rights now seem threatened by forces within itself? Brimming with insight into history and human behaviour, and written in Wright's captivating style, What is America? shows how this came to pass- how the United States, which regards itself as the most modern country on earth, is also deeply archaic, a stronghold not only of religious fundamentalism but of 'modern' beliefs in limitless progress and a universal mission that have fallen under suspicion elsewhere in the west, a rethinking driven by two World Wars and the reckless looting of our planet.
