History has a tendency to repeat itself. In his new book, Simon Schama delves into America’s past conflicts over race, religion, immigration and war to put contemporary America into a historical context. Schama uses these debates to provide a basis for the future of America. He discusses his attempts to answer the ever-evolving question, “What is an American?”
