In America, we have a problem of collective amnesia. God has blessed the United States of America perhaps more than any other nation before us. Yet, while basking in the blessing, we have forgotten that the hand of God made us a nation. Like someone long asleep, like a collective Rip Van Winkle, we must wake up from our futile dreams. Our future depends on America rising from its fatal forgetfulness, and remembering the Godly principles expressed in so many of our founding documents and general literature, which are the bedrock of this great nation. Can remembering God's role in American history bring us to a spiritual awakening--a great revival, leading to a national reformation that can spare us from our nation's apparent death spiral? American Amnesia is a collection of essays written in the last several years by author, radio and television host, and TV producer Jerry Newcombe, D.Min., focusing on God and government, on the American experiment, current society, and church and state matters. Newcombe possesses two unique resources, one material and one a special gift. Through his many interviews, he has garnered a unique and valuable collection of first-hand quotes from many prominent leaders of our day. Then, with skills honed in his longtime media and publishing work with Dr. D. James Kennedy Ministries, Dr. Newcombe sheds a bright light on our current events by drawing us consistently back to the basic principles of America's founding. From his study of original source documents, he brings an almost unparalleled knowledge of early America. With his help, we can see our moment of history unfolding through the lens of Biblical truth. Standing against forces intending to undermine God's plan for humanity in society, American Amnesia is the antidote for a nation's forgetfulness.

A wide-ranging work of cultural history and criticism that reexamines the impact of post–World War II myths of the “good war" In Looking for the Good War, Elizabeth D. Samet reexamines the literature, art, and culture that emerged after World War II, bringing her expertise as a professor of English at West Point to bear on the complexity of the postwar period in national life. She exposes the confusion about American identity that was expressed during and immediately after the war, and the deep national ambivalence toward war, violence, and veterans—all of which were suppressed in subsequent decades by a dangerously sentimental attitude toward the United States’ “exceptional” history and destiny. Ranging across film and literature, she finds the war's ambivalent legacy in some of its most heavily mythologized figures: the war correspondent epitomized by Ernie Pyle; the character of the erstwhile G.I. turned either cop or criminal in the pulp fiction and feature films of the late 1940s; the disaffected Civil War veteran who looms so large on the screen in the Cold War Western; and the resurgent military hero of the post-Vietnam period. Taken together, these figures reveal key elements of postwar attitudes toward violence, liberty, and nation—attitudes that have shaped domestic and foreign policy and that respond in various ways to various assumptions about national identity and purpose established or affirmed by World War II. As the United States reassesses its roles in Afghanistan and the Middle East, the time has come to rethink our national mythology: the way that World War II shaped our sense of national destiny, our attitudes toward the use of American military force throughout the world, and our inability to accept the realities of the twenty-first century’s decades of devastating conflict.

Museums have become ground zero in America's culture wars. Whereas fierce public debates once centered on provocative work by upstart artists, the scrutiny has now expanded to mainstream cultural institutions and the ideas they present. In Displays of Power, Steven Dubin, whose Arresting Images was deemed "masterly" by the New York Times, examines the most controversial exhibitions of the 1990s. These include shows about ethnicity, slavery, Freud, the Old West, and the dropping of the atomic bomb by the Enola Gay. This new edition also includes a preface by the author detailing the recent Sensation! controversy at the Brooklyn Museum. Displays of Power draws directly upon interviews with many key combatants: museum administrators, community activists, curators, and scholars. It authoritatively analyzes these episodes of America struggling to redefine itself in the late 20th century.

In these eloquent essays, the noted scholar and activist Vincent Harding reflects on the forgotten legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the meaning of his life today. Many of these reflections are inspired by the ambiguous message surrounding the official celebration of King's birthday. Harding sees a tendency to freeze an image of King from the period of his early leadership of the Civil Rights movement, the period culminating with his famous "I Have a Dream Speech". Harding writes passionately of King's later years, when his message and witness became more radical and challenging to the status quo at every level. In those final years before his assassination King took up the struggle against racism in the urban ghettos of the North; he became an eloquent critic of the Vietnam war; he laid the foundations for the Poor People's Campaign. This widening of his message and his tactics entailed controversy even within his own movement. But they point to a consistent expansion of his critique of American injustice and his solidarity with the oppressed. It was this spirit that brought him to Memphis in 1968 to lend his support to striking sanitation workers. It was there that he paid the final price for his prophetic witness.
