In this history of ideas, a Stanford historian illuminates the beliefs, assumptions, and values he sees woven into the fabric of America.

From the coming of the Puritans to Ronald Reagan, the author describes historical figures and events in the light of ideas that drove them. Backing his lucid prose with quotes, source material, and anecdotes, he examines slavery, nationalism, religious belief, industrialism, foreign relations, the rise of cities, immigration, economic depression, family structure, and other seminal influences on our national life.
