There are some who argue that the United States of America as a nation, should be defined by its civic identity. A federal Republic that’s found he promised equality under the law and Liberty to all of its people. But there’s a darker side to the American history too, one built on ethnonationalism and white supremacy. Colin Woodard traces the rise and fall, and rise again of these competed ideas, over the long arc of our national history.
