Description
The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Explorations and Empire here presents an intellectual history of the United States from its founding to the turn of the 20th century. From 1776, when Thomas Paine declared, "The birthday of a new world is at hand," America was unique in world history, suffused with the spirit of explorers, constantly replenished by immigrants, and informed by a continual influx of foreign ideas. William Goetzmann tells the story of America's greatest thinkers and creators, from Paine and Jefferson to Melville and William James, showing how they built upon and battled one another's ideas about the American mind.

"[A] strange and valuable book ... richly populated with radicals and utopians who, with one eye on the innermost soul and the other on world history, created a tradition of open-ended experiment."—NYTBR

"Goetzmann reminds us that the most brazen utopian ambition of them all had nothing to do with sex or rapture, but was rather founded in the radical provisions of 'we the people' and those 'certain inalienable rights'."—NYObserver
