A History of the American People

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Paul Johnson

Narrated By: Nadia May

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: March 2009

Duration: 48 hours 5 minutes

Summary:

Johnson’s monumental history of the United States, from the first settlers to the Clinton administration, covers every aspect of American culture: politics, business, art, literature, science, society and customs, complex traditions, and religious beliefs. The story is told in terms of the men and women who shaped and led the nation and the ordinary people who collectively created its unique character. Anne Hutchinson, Cotton Mather, Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, among others, are all presented with a fresh perspective. Wherever possible, letters, diaries, and recorded conversations are used to ensure a sense of actuality.

This is an in-depth portrait of a great people, from their fragile origins and struggles for independence, to their heroic efforts and sacrifices to deal with the “organic sin” of slavery and the preservation of the Union, to their explosive economic growth and emergence as the world’s greatest superpower.

“Arresting contentions and pieces of fascinating oddball information.”—New York Times Book Review
