A Magnificent book which reinterprets every aspect of American history. Readable and provocative and written with Paul Johnson's customary vigorous, direct and colourful style. A History of the Americanpeople charts the sweep and drama of America's history through it's politics and economics, it's art and literature and science, it's society and manners and, not least, it's complex religious beliefs. From Walter Raleigh to Bill Clinton, Paul Johnson casts an admiring but not uncritical eye over events and personalities through the past 400 years.
