Description

Hannah Arendt wrote that America was the greatest adventure of European man. Times have changed and stale anti-American sentiment flowing west from the European continent has replaced the flood of Europeans crossing the Atlantic in search of the American Dream. In Olof Murelius, one encounters a European observer who grasps what so many Europeans now miss, the adventure that is still America.show more

Review quote

There is a difference-sometimes greater than imagined-between the Old and the New World. Olof Murelius brings us face to face with the American Promise, and shows how the imploding European social democratic experiments have nothing in common with it: indeed, they represent betrayal of the European ideal. -- Samuel Gregg, director of research, Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty This books gives an excellent review of America's fascinating history and puts to rest many false ideas and prejudices against the United States. It is to be recommended as both informative and pleasant reading. -- Count Wilhelm Wachtmeister, Ambassador (rtd)show more
