Riassunto: The foremost American historian of his generation delves into the nation's European origins, illuminating how the new country embodied the principles of the Enlightenment--ideals that Europe, trapped by tradition and privilege, could not itself realize. "...crystalline clarity of...writing [causes] explosions in the reader's mind...history to be pondered and cherished."--The New York Times. "Learning and reason are at the service of a mind whose understanding of democracy gains brilliance and power from a passion for...freedom."--Arthur Schlesinger Jr.
L'autore: Educated at the universities of Chicago and Copenhagen and Oxford. Pitt Chair of American History at Cambridge University; Harmsworth Chair at Oxford University; Gottesman Chair at Uppsala University. Awarded the Gold Medal for History in 1972 by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
