I am an American PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

I am an American free pdf This book is a captivating memoir of one American's journey through the post-9/11 US in search of the lived realities behind the phrase 'I am an American'. Heart-rendering first-person testimonials by ordinary US citizens caught up in the extraordinary aftermath of September 11 reveal how the fear of terrorists and immigrants betrays America's core values in the name of being an American, reigniting an urgent debate about who we are and who we might become as a people and a nation, as well as how Americans remember September 11. A poignant antidote to Samuel Huntington's "Who Are We?" that more subtly than Naomi Wolf's "The End of America" 'sounds the alarm for all American patriots with a ground-level empathy reminiscent of Luis Alberto Urrae's "The Devil's Highway".
