Long Description• A  New Republic  Best Book of the Year •  The Globalist  Top Books of the Year • Winner of the Maine Literary Award for Non-fiction • Particularly relevant in understanding who voted for who in this presidential election year, this is an endlessly fascinating look at American regionalism and the eleven “nations” that continue to shape North America According to award-winning journalist and historian Colin Woodard, North America is made up of eleven distinct nations, each with its own unique historical roots. In American Nations he takes readers on a journey through the history of our fractured continent, offering a revolutionary and revelatory take on American identity, and how the conflicts between them have shaped our past and continue to mold our future. From the Deep South to the Far West, to Yankeedom to El Norte, Woodard (author of American Character: A History of the Epic Struggle Between Individual Liberty and the Common Good ) reveals how each region continues to uphold its distinguishing ideals and identities today, with results that can be seen in the composition of the U.S. Congress or on the county-by-county election maps of this year's Trump versus Clinton presidential election.

Article of interest

Thank you all for your patence and understanding during the last several weeks as we added new equipment to the web site. We are all finished with the hardware portion of the upgrade.

We still have changes coming for the web site. We will always be improving but we have a few big changes coming to the web site soon that will make things a little easier for everyone.

But the big hardware upgrade is finished. We now have two new servers that share the duty of serving up web pages, product data and pictures to you.

The two servers share the work load so neither one has to do it all and this should offer faster serverice on a regular basis. But when we need to perform backups or other maintenance on one of the machines, we can switch the system to use only the other server and you will never know.

We hope that this stops most, if not all, down time in the future. The site has become far to popular to be off line for any lenght of time.

Again, thanks for your understanding.
