Summary
History rarely starts when we think it did, and it never seems to end when we think it should. Nor does it tend to say what we think it will. The phrases 'American dream' and 'America first' were born almost exactly a century ago - and almost instantly tangled over capitalism, democracy and race. Few phrases have done more to shape America's political and cultural reality, but today, they are used without the knowledge of what they originally stood for. We're all asking questions about the present, but there are far more surprising and helpful answers to be found in the past. This book recounts the unknown history of these two expressions using the voices that appeared in regional and national newspapers, magazines, books and speeches in the first half of the 20th century
