Restless Nation: Starting Over in America

James M. Jasper


This book isolates a narrative that lies very close to the core of the American character. From colonial times to the present day, Americans have always had a deep-rooted belief in the “fresh start”—a belief that still has Americans moving from place to place faster than the citizens of any other nation.

Keywords: America, American character, colonial times, fresh start
