What Is America?: A Short History of the New World Order

What Is America?: A Short History of the New World Order

Ronald Wright

From the award-winning, no 1 bestselling writer of A brief heritage of Progress comes one other remarkable, scary and crucial book.

The united states is now the world’s lone superpower, whose deeds can make or holiday this century. For higher and worse, the US has Americanized the area. How did a marginal frontier society, in a trifling centuries, develop into the de facto ruler of the realm? Why do America’s nice achievements in democracy, prosperity and civil rights now look threatened by way of forces inside of itself?

Brimming with perception into background and human behaviour, and written in Wright’s pleasing sort, What Is the US? shows how this got here to cross; how the USA, which regards itself because the newest state on the earth, is usually deeply archaic, a stronghold not just of spiritual fundamentalism yet of “modern” ideals in unlimited growth and a common project that experience fallen less than suspicion somewhere else within the west, a rethinking pushed through international Wars and the reckless looting of our planet.

A clean, passionate examine the earlier and way forward for the world’s strongest country, What Is America? will reframe the controversy approximately our neighbour and ourselves.
