This book is an attempt to come to terms with the essence and spirit of American democracy in a series of essays on such diverse topics as the pursuit of happiness, money, fundamentalism and pragmatism, the oral society, wild at heart, life is fun. In the tradition of Tocqueville the author sees American democracy not only as a system of government but even more as a political attitude, a habit of the heart which makes it both unique and attractive to other nations. The author deals exclusively with the Americanization of the world, the spreading of American attitudes, cultures, habits, and, not the least, democratic values. He is not blind to the many shortcomings of American democracy as practiced at home, but sees America--its vitality and mobility--as still the most influential democratic force and best hope for the future of mankind.In From Marxism to Judaism: The Collected Essays of Will Herberg, ed.
