In this audiobook, historian Jay Sexton affirms George Santayana's belief that "those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." In a measured pace and professorial tone, narrator Graham Corrigan delivers a comprehensive, easy-to-understand overview of how events from the American Revolution to the Civil War and to the present presage the next chapters in American history. Sexton's practical examples and reasoned perspective avoid the political points of view that often destroy needed discourse. For listeners who want to grasp the nuances of the argument, Corrigan's narration will be a key factor. He recognizes that, at times, the material is dense and requires listeners to ponder the analysis. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
