Description

In this powerfully argued essay Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., considers what it means to be an American. The promise of America has always been a fresh start on equal footing, and the classic image of the republic is that of the melting pot, where differences of race, wealth, religion, and nationality are submerged in the pursuit and exercise of democracy. But today the idea of the melting pot is under attack, and a new orthodoxy describes America, past and present, as a nation of self-interested groups. The idea of assimilation into the mainstream is giving ground to the celebration of ethnicity. Is the purpose of history to make minority groups feel good about themselves? Or is it rather to teach an accurate understanding of the world and to protect the unifying ideals of tolerance, democracy, and human rights?
