American Nations by Colin Woodard

Eric says: “This book is an intriguing exploration of the regional cultural makeup of North America. Settlers brought their distinct cultural characteristics with them only to encounter other settlers whose customs were at odds with theirs. Over time this resulted in eleven distinct cultural regions. From Greenland to northern Mexico, the author delves into the origins of these differences, traces them from the parent cultures and countries and demonstrates how things are much more complicated than “blue” states and “red” states. A fascinating journey.”

The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker

Eric says:In The Better Angels of Our Nature, Steven Pinker outlines the history and decline of human violence from the ancient to the modern world. He makes a convincing case by presenting well-researched data, graphs, charts, and statistics in a pleasing narrative style peppered tension-breaking humor. This book is an excellent examination of how, despite what the headlines and cable news outlets would have you believe, we are currently living in the safest, least violent time in human history.”
