Lepore manages a stunning performance on a history that, as she mentions, is far too grand to tell in any one book, if at all. A cacophony of voices echo waves of political change, social upheavals, where something is acknowledged, an understanding or truth, perhaps, that throughout our country's nearly 250 year history American's have remained stubbornly consistent, and that what's past isn't necessarily prologue, but both present and future. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
