A very interesting and illuminating book. As a member of 'Yankeedom' it helps me better understand my place in the great arguments of American history, many of which are still raging today.

Is a great resource for people doing family history/genealogy. Unusual view of history and politics, immigration and migration. May answer questions about how you developed your values and beliefs and political leanings.

amazing book. facinationg. tracks our divided country from the founding fathers.

shows how we have a legacy from the different groups that landed and established.. well.. the establishment.

no matter how many people came later, these groups defined the politics and economics of their areas.

An intriguing look at how the founding settlers of the American regions impact their cultures to this day.

How about teaching the American Revolution through this perspective?

American Nations is essential reading to understanding the dynamics of American culture. Colin Woodard defines the original drives which where behind the establishment of the American colonies. Utopian societies, Retro-Feudalism and violent individualism are all key tenets within the foundation of the US. This fierce blend of conflicting ideologies is still present in today's political,cultural and religious landscapes. Far from homogenous, America has always been a fractured and fractious stew.
