Ad description

When Stephen Ambrose grew intersted in American history at age 18, there was much about America that made him proud, but there were some things he condemned: slavery; the treatment of Native Americans; racist Southern politicians; the Robber Barons of the transcontinental railroad; and the use of the atomic bomb. Through his undergraduate and graduate years–1953-1960–Ambrose gleaned these ideas from his professors. He taught these concepts when he became a history professor in 1960.Over the next three decades, Ambrose reasearched and wrote about the Civil War, Eisenhower in the 60s, Crazy Horse and Custer, Lewis and Clark, Nixon, the transcontinental railroad, and World War II. However, his views on American history have changed. In his own words:"As a scholar, a teacher, and a writer, I did some things of which I remain proud, others that today make me ashamed–to the point that I almost want to call my students from the late 1960s and early 1970s back into the classroom and say to them, ‘Listen, all that stuff I told you about Hiroshima and how unnecessary it was, or about how greedy and awful the Robber Barons were, or about how the Mexican War was simply a land-grab, or about how evil we were to the North American Indians, or about how in 1898 we became a colonial power of the worst kind, especially to the Philippines, and much else–all that was wrong. Now I want to set you straight,’ and begin my course on American history over again."That’s exactly what he does in this audiobook. And along the way he shares the reasons why America is the best country in the world.
