Summary
A panoramic study of the American identity examines the nation's fable of self-invention, from the colonial period to the present day, arguing that the promise of America lies less and less in the political realm but more in the work of individual artists, writers, musicians, and others who strikingly dramatize the challenge the U.S. poses to each of its citizens.
