If you have ever found studying American history tedious or irrelevant, you won’t after reading McClay’s short and compulsively readable introduction.

About the author

Wilfred M. McClay is the G. T. and Libby Blankenship Chair in the History of Liberty at the University of Oklahoma. His book Land of Hope, a one-volume history of America, has drawn widespread acclaim; the Wall Street Journal’s Daniel Henninger calls it “the most balanced, nuanced history of the United States I have read in the past fifty years.” McClay is also the author of The Masterless: Self and Society in Modern America, which the Organization of American Historians honored as that year’s best book in American intellectual history.
