Summary

An enduring portrait of America’s virtues and vices as seen by one of England’s greatest thinkers After losing his brother in the Great War, a troubled and depressed G. K. Chesterton accepts an invitation to join a lecture tour that will take him across the United States for the first time. Part travelogue, part exploration of the American experiment, What I Saw in America begins with a man of letters trying to reconcile his faith with the atrocities and moral dilemmas of war and expands into an illuminating consideration of the limitations of capitalism, the concept of American exceptionalism, and the future of the democratic system.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
