I'm pleased to announce the birth of my fourth book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, which went on sale in stores this morning at a healthy 372 pages.
At midnight, GMT, Bloomberg posted the first of a series of five daily excerpts from the book, for anyone who would like a preview of its thesis.
For those living in Maine, I'll be discussing American Nations in my keynote address at the Bangor Festival of the Book tomorrow evening, September 30. I'll also be at the Portland Public Library (Oct. 13) and Maine Historical Society (Oct. 26).
For readers in the nation's capital, I'll be giving a talk Oct. 17 sponsored by Zocalo Public Square and the Center for Social Cohesion.
[Update, 9/30/2011: Part II of the Bloomberg excerpt series is up across their platforms.]
