Summary
A sweeping history encompassing military, political, and religious themes in its discussion of how America evolved over 300 years into a powerful global community, and why other European powers did not. Phillips, a seasoned author of eight prior books, focuses on the English Civil War, the American Revolution, and the American Civil War in search of the factors contributing to America's position in the world today.
