about this book

With America ever under global scrutiny, Russell Banks contemplates the questions of our origins, values, heroes, conflicts, and contradictions. He writes with conversational ease and emotional insight, drawing on contemporary politics, literature, film, and his knowledge of American history.

“Russell Banks is not only one of our greatest novelists but also a courageous and visionary citizen who understand the centrality of race and the magnanimity of democracy. His first nonfiction book is a gem!” — Cornel West
