Finally: a readable popularnhistory of America— and onen~^ you can trustn”Pwbabfy the best available survey history cf MnUnited States”-TEE Â¥^EMANnI •nClarence B. Carson, continues The Freeman, “has formed a richly wovenntapestry of events and the ideas that spawned them…. For Carson, history isnnot merely a collection of facts and dates, an account of explorations, settlements,nwestward expansion, wars, Presidents, and elections. History is thenproduct of the actions of countless individuals, each under the influence ofncertain ideas. And Carson explores those ideas, ideologies, and ‘isms.’ Henshows how they were responsible for the settlement of this continent, thenstruggle for freedom, the westward expansion, the construction of schools,nchurches, factories, and the founding of new religious denominations. He explainsnwhy our ancestors fought for their beliefs, and strove to create angovernment, limited in scope, with checks and balances, that would not haventhe power to oppress the people.”nIn 5 Sweepii^ V(riumes, The American StorynVOLUME 1: THE COLONIAL EXPERIENCE, 1607-1774nVOLUME 2: THE BEGINNING OF THE REPUBLIC, 1775-1825nVOLUME 3: THE SECTIONS AND THE CIVIL WAR, 1826-1877nVOLUME 4: THE GROWTH OF AMERICA, 1878-1928nVOLUME 5: THE WELFARE STATE, 1929-1985nDr. Carson is a man who cherishes our noblest traditions. Far too many modem historians, pursuingnthe agenda of the Left, leave our past in tatters. Not Dr. Carson. He understands whatnmade our country great — and what threatens us today. He gives us the facts, and interpretsnthem in ways that patriotic conservatives and libertarians will applaud. He captures the color too,nthe clash of controversy, the values we are still straggling to hand down to our children.nIf you’ve long since left the campus behind but would like a sound, readable refresher innAmerican history, this is your first choice.nHow the Club WorksnEvery 4 wedcs (13 times a year) you get a free copy of the Club Bulletin which offers younthe Featured Selection plus a good choice of Alternates — all of interest to conservatives.n* If you want the Featured Selection, do nothing; it will come automatically. • If youndon’t want the Featured Selection, or you do want an Alternate, indicate your wishes onnthe handy card enclosed with your Bulletin and return it by die deadline date. • Thenmajority of Chib books will be offered at 20-50% discounts, plus a charge for shipping andnhandling. •* As soon as you buy and pay for 3 books at regular Club prices, your membershipnmay be ended at any time, either by you or by die Chib. • If you ever receive anFeatured Selection without having had 10 days to decide if you want it, you may return it atnChib expense for fiill credit •*• Good service.
