Summary
Explains how the influences of dreamers, zealots, hucksters, and superstitious groups shaped America's tendency toward a rich fantasy life. Over the course of five centuries our ultra-indiviualism has been attached to epic dreams and fantasies. From P.T. Barnum to Hollywood and the wild-and-crazy sixties, to our conspiracy theories and obsession with extraterrestrials; our peculiar love of the fantastic has made America exceptional in a way we have never acknowledged. If you want to understand the politics and culture of twenty-first century America, read this book
