Publisher Comments:

The bestselling historians turn their focus to Americas role in the world since the end of World War II

 

Schweikart, author of the number one New York Times bestseller A Patriots History of the United States, and Dougherty take a critical look at America, from the postwar boom to her search for identity in the twenty-first century.

 

The second volume of A Patriots History of the Modern World picks up in 1945 with a world irrevocably altered by World War II and a powerful, victorious United States. But new foes and challenges soon arose: the growing sphere of Communist influence, hostile dictatorships and unreliable socialist allies, the emergence of China as an economic contender, and the threat of world Islamification.

 

The book reestablishes the argument of American exceptionalism and the interplay of our democratic pillars—Judeo-Christian religious beliefs, free market capitalism, land ownership, and common law—around the world.

 

Schweikart and Dougherty offer a fascinating conservative history of the last six decades.

Synopsis:

The revised, 10th anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller

Over the past decade, A Patriots History of the United States has become the definitive conservative history of our country, correcting the biases of historians and other intellectuals who downplay the greatness of Americas patriots. Professors Schweikart and Allen have now revised, updated, and expanded their book, which covers Americas long history with an appreciation for the values that made this nation uniquely successful.

Synopsis:

From Christopher Columbus to the fall of Saddam Hussein, this book will go a long way in restoring perspective and clarity to readers' understanding of America's amazing story and the noble principles on which the country was founded.
