    Review quote
    "A masterly survey--readable, intelligent and, depending on your point of view, either annoyingly or endearingly cranky." --" Newsweek""Challenges the present consensus...Monstrously energetic, greatly imaginative, large-minded and generous-hearted, occasionally grotesquely unfair, but almost always pointing in the right direction." --" American Spectator""Arresting contentions and pieces of fascinating oddball information...The book also offers a rare opportunity to witness someone trying to make sense of all 400 years of American history and to discover what 'tremendous lessons' it holds for Americans and 'the rest of mankind.'" --" New York Times Book Review""Paul Johnson's" The History of the American People" is as majestic in its scope as the country it celebrates. His theme is the men and women, prominent and unknown, whose energy, vision, courage and confidence shaped a great nation. It is a compelling antidote to those who regard the future with pessimism." -- Henry A. Kissinger"This is vivid and memorable writing...Proves that history can still be literature."--" National Review""A fresh, readable and provocative survey. He is full of opinions...And Johnson can be very wise." --" Los Angeles Times""His zesty, irreverent narratives teach more history to more people than all the post-modernist theorists, highbrow critics and dons put together."-- "Times Literary Supplement"
