1001 Events That Made America by Alan Axelrod Ph.D.

A highly readable chronology... one of those rare books that readers will enjoy having close at hand. -- Tulsa World For some, patriotism means flags and parades, for others its my country right or wrong. But its much more than that, and, as Alan Alexrod observes in this revealing review of our history, true patriotism is built on a bedrock of understanding-- of who we are as individuals and as a nation, of how our ideals and our democracy have evolved, and of what it really means to be an American. Its a challenge that calls for an open mind and a clear perspective on the people, events, and issues that shaped our society-- precisely what Alexrod provides. Just released in paperback, this popular chronology of key events in our history sweeps from 45,000 B.C., when the first intrepid Asians crossed the Bering Land Bridge, to the 21st century, which finds us the richest and most powerful nation in the world. This panoramic journey is marked out by more than 1,000 milestones and turning points, each explained in concise, lively detail. Axelrod has a wonderful knack for capturing powerful ideas, towering figures, and definitive moments with a memorable turn of phrase. From Plymouth Rock to Pearl Harbor, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement, from George Washington to George W. Bush, we learn what happened, who was involved, and why its important. And as we journey from past to present, we discover the real answer to the question: What is a patriot
