Overview

Russell Banks, uno de los narradores mas sobresalientes de la actual novelistica estadounidense actual, analiza en este breve, agil y esclarecedor ensayo la mentalidad del ciudadano norteamericano, ahondando en las fuentes de la formacion de una colectividad conformada por la herencia de distintas culturas europeas. Para ahondar en las fuentes de esta mentalidad, realiza un rapido repaso por la historia tal como se ha cristalizado en el imaginario de los norteamericanos, desde el Mayflower a la era de Internet, pasando por el decisivo papel que el cine hollywoodense, con sus films destinados a la divulgacion de gestas belicas y a la sacralizacion de sus heroes, ha desempenado en la conciencia patriotica de una nacion. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION As America undergoes global scrutiny, acclaimed novelist Russell Banks contemplates the questions of our origins, values, heroes, conflicts, and contradictions with conversational ease and the insightful historical observation found in his works of fiction. Drawing on politics, literature, film, and a deep knowledge of American history, Banks traces the first colonists' differing motives, their points of intersection through the centuries, and the inevitable influence of the existing cultures they encountered or enslaved, building a vision of an empire built upon destructive--though also creative--forces.
