Rather, the author takes you on a slice-of-history ride which uses the year as the fulcrum of his story.

The result, Americais a work with all the breadth and heft of, well a daily newspaper. Then as now, journalism was incapable of understanding the significance of day-to-day happenings and how important (or soon-forgot) they might be.
