THIS IS THE SECOND VOLUME OF PROFESSOR BOORSTIN'S PROJECTED THREE-VOLUME HISTORY OF AMERICAN LIFE. VOLUME ONE, THE AMERICANS: THE COLONIAL EXPERIENCE, WAS THE WINNER OF THE BANCROFT PRIZE IN 1959. BOORSTIN'S ACHIEVEMENT IS TO COMPEL US TO SEE AGAIN, RANGED IN ORDER, THE WHOSE MASS OF ATTITUDES AND MECHANISMS THAT ARISE FROM AMERICAN DIFFERENCE, AND TO DISPLAY HIS MATERIAL SO ABUNDANTLY AND INGENIOUSLY THAT WE SEE ASPECTS OF THE NATION'S PAST AS IF FOR FOR THE FIRST TIME. A PROFOUNDLY ARRESTING CONTRIBUTION TO AMERICAN INTELLECTUAL HISTORY..BOORSTIN CONTINUES TO ADD MEAT AND SUBSTANCE TO SO MANY OF THE LONG-BARE BONES OF HISTORICAL ASSUMPTION. THIS IS THE HISTORY OF A NATION BEGINNING AGAIN AND AGAIN, UNDER MEN'S VERY EYES. I CAN ONLY REPEAT THAT THIS IS A FINE BOOK-CONTROVERSIAL CERTAINLY, BUT A COURAGEOUS, LEARNED AND MOST EXCITING WORK.
