American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America by Colin WoodardDirections & Maps
One would think that over the centuries, assimi-lation and internal migration would have worn down the barriers dividing Americans. But according to Woodard, these barriers are rooted deep in our past when 11 distinct “nations” were established by early settlers, each with their own territory, culture, and governing philosophy. Using this theory, he tries to explain why certain states vote along party lines, why some regions are passionately religious, and much more. This engaging read is sure to be a conversation starter.
