Review: The American Dream: A Short History of an Idea That Shaped a NationUser Review - Goodreads
This was to support my research for my thesis on the Great Gatsby. It was helpful, but a bit repetitive for such a short book. Cullen did a great job presenting his information on the American Dream in an organized and accessible manner.
