    American Nations MOBI î × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co american mobile, nations epub, American Nations PDFGrowing up in the South I always wondered why my family was so different from those around us We were friendly with the people in our community but when serious discussions came up my parents grew uiet Our friends and neighbors had no such reservations They were opinionated and always eager for a fight of any kind whether with fists or words We lived side and by side and spoke the same language but I always got the sense that we were just not ‘one of them’My family was never really gung ho when it came to discussions about the Confederacy or flying the flag They were proud of being southern but it seemed to stop there They were Republicans back in the days when everyone else was a Democrat We just did not ‘fit’ Doing family history I learned that my mother’s people were New England uakers who gradually made their way into the south My father’s people lived in the North Carolina Highlands where they intermarried

How Conservatives Won the Heart of America and others have done valuable work in looking deeper than the familiar red stateblue state divide to try to explain why people in different regions think and vote the way they do But come on Eleven nations?

    American Nations MOBI î × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co american mobile, nations epub, American Nations PDFJournalist and amateur historian Colin Woodard makes a lot of interesting assertions on the back of thin evidence Splitting North America into eleven competing “nations” or accurately cultural archetypes Woodard goes to great lengths to explain the history of the United States not as a single hegemonic unit but as many smaller competing units within a federal framework Woodard himself explains his work as a synthesis and looking through th

If you grew up in the Northeast you're probably think

    American Nations MOBI î × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co american mobile, nations epub, American Nations PDFI am very enthusiastic about this 2011 book and would recommend it heartily even to people who might not themselves be inclined to give it five stars Colin Woodard assigns all of North America to one of eleven regions as opposed to Joel Garreau's NINE NATIONS OF NORTH AMERICA back in 1981 In so doing Woodard ignored the southern tip of Florida but added four brand new regions New Netherland Greater New York and a tri sected South that replaced a unified Con

    American Nations MOBI î × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co american mobile, nations epub, American Nations PDFI give this book 4 stars because his underlying observation is so cogent so obvious and so explanatory Just wonderful Anybody who sees and describes the reality that makes up the American nations deserves all the accolades we can throw at him At the same time the author's leftism leads him to say

    American Nations MOBI î × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co american mobile, nations epub, American Nations PDFRecommended with reservations; the first half of the book covering the historical origins of the 11 diverse nations that comprise modern United States is brilliant For instance most people don't realize that the vibrant multicultural entity that is New York was just like that continuously all the way back to its founding as New Amsterdam which was the most diverse and progressive city of its time Or that Deep South was founded by Barbados plantators unlike the Tidewater area of Virginia and Maryland founded by recently transpanted gentry from England with conseuent differences in culture and policy Etc etc The second half of the book however is devoted to exposing the author's deeply partisan interpretation of the recent US history which is so biased that it makes

    American Nations MOBI î × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co american mobile, nations epub, American Nations PDFMy problem with broad stroke history books is that they are far too broad and that you cannot really make claims or assertions because there simply isn’t enough evidence provided to back them up Ultimately this is the greatest weakness of Woodard’s book It’s a very interesting premise and one that I largely find to be true and intuitive if you travel and live in different places in this country I grew up in Nebraska and found my time in North Carolina to be an interesting study mostly in what “self reliance” meant to different people because it’s everything to the individual in my Germanic Midwestern upbringing but had a communal definition in the south It’s just that there wasn’t enough evidence provided behind each separate American
