The Fourth of July: And the Founding of America
Peter de Bolla's straightforward, entertaining book seeks to upend the various myths that permeate Independence Day, not in an effort to snuff out fireworks and summer cookouts, but to provide greater awareness for their significance. By tracking an "architecture of belief," de Bolla decodes what the symbolic holiday represents to this country on both the micro and macro levels.
