Summary
  • "This book presents three decades of writings by one of America's most distinguished historians. John Higham, renowned for his influential works on immigration, ethnicity, political symbolism, and the writing of history, here traces the changing contours of American culture since its beginnings, focusing on the ways an extraordinarily mobile society has allowed divergent ethnic, class, and ideological groups to "hang together" as Americans."--Jacket
