American Political Ideas Viewed from the Standpoint of Universal History
An outstanding literary work, it contains three lectures delivered at the Royal Institute of Britain by Fiske. In these lectures Fiske has illustrated some of the basic ideas of American politics while discussing the relations and political maneuverings of politicians in general. This remarkable work stirred the whole American nation and awakened a new spirit in the people. Motivational!
