Summary
The Epic of America paints a sweeping picture of the diverse past that has created Americaʹs national story. In this important narrative, James Truslow Adams reviews how the ordinary American has matured over time in outlook, character, and opinion. Adams is interested in the whole of American history, how it began, and what it represented in the first half of the twentieth century. He traces the historical origins of the American concept of "bigger and better," attitudes toward business, the American Dream, and other characteristics generally considered "typically American." Ever since America became an independent nation, each generation has seen an uprising of its citizens to save the American Dream from forces seeking to overwhelm and dispel it
