McClay, Wilfred M.
American Educator, v26 n3 p12-19 Fall 2002
Asserts that while U.S. history is often viewed as "thin and provincial gruel," it is, in fact, a tremendous drama where great issues of human existence come to life (e.g., the proper means and ends of liberty, order, individuality, material prosperity, technology, and democracy). Discusses American myths and narratives, noting disagreements over how to teach American history. (SM)
