✏Exceptional America Book Summary : Why does a country built on the concept of liberty have the highest incarceration rate in the world? How could the first Western nation to elect a person of color as its leader suffer from institutional racism? How does Christian fundamentalism coexist with gay marriage in the American imagination? In essence, what makes the United States exceptional? In this provocative exploration of American exceptionalism, Mugambi Jouet examines why Americans are far more divided than other Westerners over basic issues—including wealth inequality, health care, climate change, evolution, the literal truth of the Bible, abortion, gay rights, gun control, mass incarceration, and war. Drawing inspiration from Alexis de Tocqueville, Jouet, raised in Paris by a French mother and a Kenyan father, wields his multicultural sensibility to parse the ways in which the intense polarization of U.S. conservatives and liberals has become a key dimension of American exceptionalism—an idea widely misunderstood to mean American superiority. Instead, Jouet contends that exceptionalism, once a source of strength, may now spell decline, as unique features of U.S. history, politics, law, culture, religion, and race relations foster grave conflicts and injustices. This book offers a brilliant dissection of the American soul, in all of its outsize, clashing, and striking manifestations.

✏Is America Exceptional Book Summary : This book continues the saga of the progeny of the Marciari family, founded in Florence during the Renaissance, wandering through many European countries, losing contacts, but over time migrating to the new continent. Commencing as the Thirteen English Colonies in America are preparing to launch their struggle for independence from the mother country, the novel continues to present times a history of the United States. Told from the chronicles of family descendants, the reader becomes a part of the individual lives of those who created American Exceptionalism. Reflecting America, these "cousins" work closely with the titans of history. Through their records, we observe George Washington as he ponders the fate of the patriot troops at Valley Forge; experience the dangers of the unknown with the expedition of Lewis and Clark exploring the new lands obtained through the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon Bonaparte; or live through the long trek across the United States in a covered wagon to California during the Gold Rush. We participate in the meetings conducted by J. P. Morgan as he provides advice to President Cleveland in resolving the Panic of 1893, watch a cousin decline Teddy Roosevelt's invitation to join the Rough Riders; or become absorbed with Woodrow Wilson's problems with his Peace Plans. Suffer the agonies of loved ones killed in war, the depravations and anxieties of those with jobs eliminated and homes lost in the Great Depression and Dust storms of the nineteen thirties. The innovative new government generated administration and emulation. As the nation grew in size, population and wealth, it gained the appellation, exceptionalism, becoming the envy of the world. However, the challenges facing the new culture soon demonstrated the ugly features of human nature Confiscation of Native Americans lands Enslavement of millions of Africans Barriers to immigration Delays in providing assistance to nations beset by invasion Wide income gap between the wealthy and poor Continuation of racial discrimination Violence perpetuated by gun ownership

✏America The Exceptional Book Summary : Has America seen her best days? America the Exceptional compares America present to America past, reminding us that the Founding Fathers did not simply believe in Christian principles, but also that God visibly acted on behalf of the new country. This book demonstrates how all of our freedoms, including religious freedom, cannot survive in a secular society. America the Exceptional is a siren call to re-awaken America. "As a veteran FDNY fire fighter who responded to and worked the horrible scene at Ground Zero following the 9/11 attacks, Frank Moore has earned the right and has the insights to address what has gone seriously wrong with America. What he has to say in America the Exceptional is exceptionally spot-on!" -- Dr. Carol Swain, author, political pundit and former college professor at Princeton and Vanderbilt "Frank Moore has captured the intentions of the Founding Fathers and their documents that established the standards for America . . . that link "our Creator" to our country's purpose. Forgetting the basics of our founding principles will lead our country toward secularism and away from our Creator, destroying America as we have known it." -- Brigadier General R. Dennis Kerr, USA, retired "You have captured the key insights that made America great and presented them in a captivating way. America the Exceptional should be read across America. For our nation to preserve its freedoms, we must rediscover its founding secrets, and this book does exactly that." -- William J. Federer, American historian and author Frank Moore is a retired FDNY lieutenant.

✏Give Me Liberty Book Summary : An award-winning historian recounts the history of American liberty through the stories of thirteen essential documents Nationalism is inevitable: It supplies feelings of belonging, identity, and recognition. It binds us to our neighbors and tells us who we are. But increasingly -- from the United States to India, from Russia to Burma -- nationalism is being invoked for unworthy ends: to disdain minorities or to support despots. As a result, nationalism has become to many a dirty word. In Give Me Liberty, award-winning historian and biographer Richard Brookhiser offers up a truer and more inspiring story of American nationalism as it has evolved over four hundred years. He examines America's history through thirteen documents that made the United States a new country in a new world: a free country. We are what we are because of them; we stay true to what we are by staying true to them. Americans have always sought liberty, asked for it, fought for it; every victory has been the fulfillment of old hopes and promises. This is our nationalism, and we should be proud of it.

✏A Patriot s History of the Modern World Vol I Book Summary : “America’s story from 1898 to 1945 is nothing less than the triumph of American exceptionalism over liberal progressivism, despite a few temporary victories by the latter.” Conservative historian Larry Schweikart has won wide acclaim for his number one New York Times bestseller, A Patriot’s History of the United States. It proved that, contrary to the liberal biases in countless other his­tory books, America had not really been founded on racism, sexism, greed, and oppression. Schweikart and coauthor Michael Allen restored the truly great achievements of America’s patriots, founders, and heroes to their rightful place of honor. Now Schweikart and coauthor Dave Dougherty are back with a new perspective on America’s half-century rise to the center of the world stage. This all-new volume corrects many of the biases that cloud the way people view the Treaty of Versailles, the Roaring Twenties, the Crash of 1929, the deployment of the atomic bomb, and other critical events in global history. Beginning with the Spanish-American War— which introduced the United States as a global military power that could no longer be ignored—and con­tinuing through the end of World War II, this book shows how a free, capitalist nation could thrive when put face-to-face with tyrannical and socialist powers. Schweikart and Dougherty narrate the many times America proved its dominance by upholding the prin­ciples on which it was founded—and struggled on the rare occasions when it strayed from those principles. The authors make a convincing case that America has constantly been a force for good in the world, improving standards of living, introducing innova­tions, guaranteeing liberty, and offering opportunities to those who had none elsewhere. They also illustrate how the country ascended to superpower status at the same time it was figuring out its own identity. While American ideals were defeating tyrants abroad, a con­stant struggle against progressivism was being waged at home, leading to the stumbles of the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the attack on Pearl Harbor. Despite this rocky entrance on the world stage, it was during this half century that the world came to embrace all things American, from its innovations and businesses to its political system and popular culture. The United States began to define what the rest of the world could emulate as the new global ideal. A Patriot’s History of the Modern World provides a new perspective on our extraordinary past—and offers lessons we can apply to preserve American exceptional­ism today and tomorrow.

✏The Memory Hole Book Summary : The U.S. history curriculum is under attack. Politicians, political analysts, and ideologues seek to wipe clean the slate of the American past and replace it with one of their own invention. The basis for this new narrative comes from political beliefs of the present, rather than any systematic examination of the past. These antihistorians campaign to insert their version of American history into the nation’s classrooms, hoping to begin a process that will forever transform our understanding of America’s past. The Memory Hole examines five central topics in the US history curriculum, showing how antihistorians of both the left and right seek to distort these topics and insert a refashioned story in America’s classrooms. Ignoring facts, refashioning other facts and pretending that there are no rules in the telling of history, these reinterpreters of the past place the minds of America’s young people in danger. The beleaguered hero of this book is the discipline of History, and The Memory Hole shows how the history curriculum should adhere to history’s habits of mind that require complex, sophisticated and subtle thinking about the past. History and social studies teachers, students of history and all those who care about the deep and enduring value of history will value this book and its conclusions.
