While the future of America does get some mention in The American Future: A History. The book definitely spends more time on the past. Wars and the founding fathers played a large part, but the topics which most interested me were the fascinatingly detailed and very specific depictions of the horrible atrocities white America committed against the Native Americans, The Chinese, Latin Americans, and The Slaves. This came as no surprise to me, but some of the details were shocking !
