  1. The first part of the book was fascinating, as it provided information of the ideology, settlement, and customs of each nation That part was an interesting read I was leaning toward giving this a 4 star rating until I hit about Chapter 24 At this point, the author loses all objectivity and shows his clear northeastern bias against the south His generalizations about the south aren t based on any objective data, but on personal prejudices from his perspective There are a good number of downright [...]


  2. As I struggled to fathom what has happened to the US in the past year, this book came along and has begun to inform my thinking about how our current governmental scenario has developed.Understanding the point of view world view of people of the various nations of North America has helped me to be a bit less reactive in my responses as decisions get made that I think are bonkers But bonkers because I ve come from my nation and they ve come from theirs.Next challenge figuring out how to bridge th [...]

  5. This book geographically divides the USA into regions characterized by the sorts of people who first settled what is now the American nation The conclusions are insightful, fascinating and make for cannot put it down reading The first two thirds of the book are an important history lesson not generally taught in schools The last third of the book is unfortunately rather emotionally driven re making points that were already made earlier.One thing the author should have done is better fact checkin [...]


  6. Anyone who thought that the United States was a coherent country with common values should read Woodard s book It offers British readers in particular a much nuanced insight into the complex mix of cultures and values assimilated into the boundaries of this state, and also signposts what might have happened instead at different junctures The arguments are supported by solid references and the book would make not just enjoyable leisure reading but serve as a valuable alternative viewpoint to rece [...]
