Publisher Description

The past three years (and beyond) have provided a deluge of horrific news headlines: stolen elections, fascist rallies, families torn apart and locked away. A common refrain erupts at each new atrocity: This isn't who we are. In American Rule, Jared Yates Sexton lays bare the foundational myths at the heart of the collective American imagination. Stirring, deeply researched, and disturbingly familiar, American Rule is a call to examine common misconceptions of what it means, and has always meant, to be an American.
