For over two hundred years, America has been a shining city on the hill: a symbol of freedom and opportunity for the rest of the world. An inspiration for those living in abject poverty or under oppressive regimes. A refuge and a home. A grand experiment in freedom. A prosperous land of opportunity. A force for good in times of evil, and a force for order in times of chaos.
But what if America had never been founded?
New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza asks: how would the world be different if America had never “happened?” Along the way, he uncovers the aspects of American government and life that make our country truly exceptional, retelling the inspirational story of how the world’s freest country was born. America is both inspiring and chilling – a grim portrait of what the world could have been without America, and a warm reminder of all the things that make our country great, both for Americans and the rest of the world. D’Souza encourages us to celebrate America – and to make sure we protect her from fading away.
