In this Chautauqua Prize Finalist, Colin Woodard examines the history of, and solutions to, the key American political dilemma: How do we best reconcile individual liberty with the good of the community? Woodard traces these two key strands through the entire course of the nation’s existence and offers suggestions to achieve balance and break political deadlock. Written in “straightforward and accessible prose,” the book is a “finely entwined narrative,” readers said. Ultimately, "American Character does considerable justice to the vibrant patchwork that makes up the U.S. quilt."
