How has America, with its many ethnic, class, and ideological divisions, allowed divergent groups to "hang together" as Americans? In this book, a distinguished historian explores the ways in which Americans have conceived of a national identity and demonstrates that an appreciation of America's kaleidoscopic diversity can be reconciled with an affirmation of its common national culture.

John Higham, John Martin Vincent Professor Emeritus of History at The Johns Hopkins University, is a past president of the Organization of American Historians. His books include Send These to Me and Strangers in the Land. Carl J. Guarneri is professor of history at Saint Mary's College of California.
