The American future by Simon Schama A signed first edition

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

* The American Future: A History , written in 2008 by Simon Schama who has spent half his life there, contains chapters devoted to the most compelling issues facing Americans now - the projection of power ("American war") ; race , immigration and the problematic promise of e pluribus unum (" American skin"); the intensity of religious conviction in public life ("American fervour") ; the mystique of American land and its battles with the imperatives of profit ('American Plenty'. Cumulatively the chapters build into a history of American exceptionalism - the 'American difference' that means so much to its people but which has led it into calamities as well as triumphs. * The American Future: A History argues that if you want to know what is truly at stake, you need to absorb these stories and understand this history - for understanding is the condition of hope.
This SIGNED first edition copy is in good condition with only a minor mark to front of dust jacket above the author's name, otherwise only very minor wear and tear to d/j.
