A Most Imperfect Union

ebook

Enough with the dead white men! The true story of the United States lies with its most overlooked and marginalized peoples—the workers, immigrants, housewives, and slaves who built America from the ground up, and who made this country what it is today. In A Most Imperfect Union, cultural critic Ilan Stavans and award-winning cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz present a vibrant history of these unsung Americans. In an irreverent, fast-paced narrative that challenges the conventional narrative of American history, Stavans and Alcaraz offer a fresh, controversial take on the philosophies, products, practices, and people—from Algonquin and African royals to early feminists, Puerto Rican radicals, and Arab immigrants—that have made America such an outsized and extraordinary land.
