Kaum ein Land polarisiert so sehr wie die USA. Sie werden bewundert, belächelt und geschmäht zugleich. Was macht dieses Land aus, das der Welt seinen Stempel aufdrückt wie kein anderes? Steve Wiegand zeigt Ihnen die Geschichte dieses Landes, er beginnt mit den Ureinwohnern, beschreibt Motivation und Engagement der Pilgerväter, den Unabhängigkeitskampf und den Bürgerkrieg. Ausführlich stellt er Politik und Gesellschaft der USA im 20. Jahrhundert dar: vom Ersten Weltkrieg bis zum Fall der Berliner Mauer. Abschließend zeigt er noch ein Amerika, das als einzige Supermacht seinen Platz in der Welt sucht. Fundiert und mit einem kritischen Blick auf Anspruch und Wirklichkeit beschreibt der Autor den Weg der USA von der Sklaverei bis zur Wahl von Donald Trump als US-Präsident.
