The question of American identity has exploded in a series of debates about immigration, racial preference, education, family values, and the writing of American history. This study asks whether Americans are now, or ever have been, a nation. It aims to present a challenge to every kind of orthodox opinion, as well as a sweeping revisionist view of the American past, present and future.

Michael Lind's unsettling and ambitious new book brilliantly challenges the culture-war extremists of both the right and the left, develops a sweeping reinterpretation of American history, and offers an original vision of a better American future. Even at points of disagreement, I am greatly impressed by the toughness of Lind's intellect, the breadth of his knowledge, and the decency of his aspirations for our country. This book may well prove to be the most consequential book of the year--and several years to come.About the Author:
