30562 The American Dream: From Jamestown to Silicon Valley  

What does it mean to be an American? What is meant by “with liberty and justice for all”? Why were the words “to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” placed in the U.S. Constitution’s preamble? This three-part course will explore these questions through a Great Courses video series including: The American Mind, presented by Professor Allen C. Guelzo, Librarian of Congress Daniel Boorstin’s The Americans, and Harvard historian Jill Lepore’s These Truths.
