Description

"With eloquence, wit, passion, and irony, The American Future traces the history of an idea: that of our national destiny... A book of beautiful writing, peppered with wisecracks, slashed with rapier thrusts." -- Philadelphia Inquirer

A De Tocqueville for the 21st century, Simon Schama, NBCC Award winning author of Rough Crossings offers an essential, historical, long view analysis of the American character in The American Future. Shama examines four themes -- war, race and faith, immigration, and custodianship of the land -- through the prism of the historic 2008 presidential election in a magnificent work that the Wall Street Journal calls a "celebration of American resiliency." Niall Ferguson says, "I hope Obama will have this book on his bedside table."
