The first and only conservative history of the United States -- from the bestselling, critically acclaimed author of Modern Times, The Birth of the Modern, and A History of the Jews.

Historian Paul Johnson, "a latter day Mencken" (Foreign Affairs), whose remarkable works A History of the Jews and The Birth of the Modern were each hailed by the New York Times Book Review as "a tour de force", now offers readers a challenging, lucid, and multifaceted history of our nation from the first colonies to the 1996 elections from a uniquely conservative perspective.

"The creation of the United States is the greatest of all human adventures", writes Paul Johnson, and this work is a reinterpretation of every aspect of American history -- its politics and economics; its art, literature, and science; its society and manners; and its complex and pervasive religious beliefs. Johnson tells the story in terms of the outstanding men and women who personally shaped and led the nation and also the ordinary people who have given the country its practical idealism and strength.
