Summary
How has America, with its many ethnic, class, and ideological divisions, allowed divergent groups to 'hang together' as Americans? This book explores the ways in which Americans have conceived of a national identity and demonstrates that an appreciation of America's kaleidoscopic diversity can be reconciled with an affirmation of its common national culture
