American Nations : A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America

    American Nations : A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America / Colin Woodard, Walter Dixon (audiobook)

    An illuminating history of North America's eleven rival cultural regions that explodes the red state-blue state myth.

    North America was settled by people with distinct religious, political, and ethnographic characteristics, creating regional cultures that have been at odds with one another ever since. Subsequent immigrants didn't confront or assimilate into an "American" or "Canadian" culture, but rather into one of the eleven distinct regional ones that spread over the continent each staking out mutually exclusive territory.

    In American Nations, Colin Woodard leads us on a journey through the history of our fractured continent, and the rivalries and alliances between its component nations, which conform to neither state nor international boundaries. He illustrates and explains why "American" values vary sharply from one region to another.
