The Battle for the American Mind
A Brief History of A Nation's ThoughtBook - 2004
The Battle for the American Mind brings together religion, politics, economics, science, and literature to present a compelling history of the American people. In this brief and entertaining book, noted historian Carl J. Richard argues that there have been three worldviews that have dominated American thought--theism, humanism, and skepticism. By clearly explaining what Americans believed, exploring why they did so, and showing how that impacted the nation's development, Carl Richard presents a unique portrait of the United States--past and present.
