What others are saying:
"William J. Bennett artfully and subtly makes connections between our past and current events, reminding us ... that we are intimately and immediately connected to the extraordinary Americans who have bestowed upon us our great heritage.... [T]he importance of America: The Last Best Hope probably exceeds anything Dr. Bennett has ever written, and it is more elegantly crafted and eminently readable than any comprehensive work of history Ive read in a very long time. Its silly to compare great works of history to great novels, but this book truly is a page-turner.... Prepare to have your faith in, hope for, and love of America renewed."
"The Role of history is to inform, inspire, and sometimes provoke us, which is why Bill Bennetts wonderfully readable book is so important. He puts our nations triumphs, along with its lapses, into the context of a narrative about the progress of freedom. Every now and then its useful to be reminded that we are a fortunate people, blessed with generations of leaders who repeatedly renewed the meaning of America."
"For too long Americans have been looking for a history of our country that tells the story of Americas triumphs as well as its tragedies. Now Bill Bennett has come forward with America: The Last Best Hope, which tells the story-fairly and fully-from 1492 to 1914. Americans who have been reading recent biographies of the Founding Fathers will love this book."
"Bill Bennetts book will stand as perhaps the most important addition to American scholarship at this, the start of the new century. For the past fifty years American historians have either distorted American history or reduced it to a mess of boring indictments of our cultural and political heritage. With this book Bennett offers to Americans young and old an exciting and enjoyable history of what makes America the greatest nation on earth.
