"The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history."
- George Orwell, author of 1984
To understand American history is to understand who we are as a nation. History tells us from where we've come, how we arrived, our failures and triumphs, the lessons learned, and the journeys made. Every nation has a story and America's story is perhaps the greatest of all.
From the birth of our nation to the most recent Presidential election, Michael Medved delves into the stories behind the history, using edge-of-your-seat storytelling, humor, and logic. This collection contains more than American history. Michael also brings to light many truths and misconceptions on topics ranging from Judaism, to terrorism, Hollywood, and the media. There is a story behind why America is the greatest nation on God's green Earth. And this is it.
