America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, imposes few restraints upon its citizens. From the Founding Fathers and the Constitution onwards, the individual and his freedom have come first in the nation's priorities. This remarkable and innovative history of twentieth-century America follows the trajectories of some of those who have made it the extraordinary nation it is today.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Teddy Roosevelt is the first American figure to come under Walker's journalistic scrutiny in this examination of what - and more importantly, who - made America great in the 20th century. Here are 26 movers and shakers, the individuals who came to represent the nation's success: Henry Ford, Duke Ellington, Martin Luther King, Walt Disney, Billy Graham, Katharine Hepburn, John Steinbeck and more. A fascinating way to explain American dominance in the last century by one of journalism's most respected US commentators. (Kirkus UK)
