Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer Jill Lepore offers a groundbreaking investigation into the origins of our divided nation in These Truths: A History of the United States. In the most ambitious one-volume American history in decades, Lepore offers a magisterial account of the origins and rise of a divided nation. The American experiment rests on three ideas―political equality, natural rights, and the sovereignty of the people. And it rests, too, “on a dedication to inquiry, fearless and unflinching,” writes Lepore in her exploration into the American past that places truth itself at the center of the nation’s history.
