American Exceptionalism provokes intense debates culturally, economically, politically, and socially. This collection, edited by Charles W. Dunn of Regent University's Robertson School of Government, brings together analysis of the idea's origins, history and future. Contributors include: Hadley Arkes, Michael Barone, James W. Ceasar, Charles W. Dunn, Daniel L. Dreisbach, T. David Gordon, Steven F. Hayward, Hugh Heclo, Marvin J. Folkertsma, William Kristol, and George H. Nash. While many now argue against the policies and ideology of American Exceptionalism as antiquated and expired, the authors collected here make the bold claim that a closer reading of our own history reveals that there is still an exceptional aspect of American thought, identity and government worth advancing and protecting. It will be the challenge of the coming American generations to both refine and examine what we mean when we call America "exceptional," and this book provides readers a first step towards a necessary understanding of the exceptional purpose, progress and promise of the United States of America.

Review:

[E]very day and everywhere in the world citizens of other countries line up in long lines at American embassies, patiently waiting for the opportunity of coming to America. Call it what you may, American Exceptionalism or something else, America has a magnetic appeal not found anywhere else in the world. . . . Regardless of whether American Exceptionalism attracts or repels, debates about it open the window to a deeper understanding of the word American. (Excerpted from the introduction)--Charles W. Dunn, author of The Scarlet Thread of Scandal: Morality and the American Presidency

About the Author:

Charles W. Dunn currently serves as the Distinguished Professor of Government at Regent University's Robertson Graduate School of Government, where he previously served as dean. He has also taught at Clemson University, Grove City College, the University of Illinois-Urbana, and Florida State University.
