THE IDEAS THAT MADE AMERICA

THE IDEAS THAT MADE AMERICA

A Brief History

By Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen. This accessible and compelling overview examines the ideas that have been major forces in American history and driven movements such as transcendentalism, Social Darwinism, conservatism, and post-modernism, and more. Tracing how generation after generation of Americans have addressed the issues and events of their time and place, the author highlights key concepts that have both captivated and been the cause of fierce debate, such as notions of freedom, belonging, the market, morality, and truth. Presented in succinct, engaging prose and spanning a variety of disciplines from religion and social theory to philosophy and the arts, the volume guides readers through the diverse strains of American thought. Grades 10 and up. Index. Bibliography. Notes. Illustrated. Oxford University Press. 220 pages. ©2019.
