What did the words “the pursuit of happiness” and “we the people” mean then, and what do they mean now?

Joseph Ellis, an American history scholar and author of bestselling books about George Washington, John and Abigail Adams, Thomas Jefferson, John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. All his books converged to inform us about the founding of our country and the founding of a continent-wide democracy.

Says Roxanne, “Professor Ellis has earned a Pulitzer, a national book award, and has brilliantly navigated the tricky balance of producing books of scholarly standards with widespread, enthusiastic, appreciative readership. He now brings these considerable skills to his new book, American Dialogue: The Founders and Us, which for the first time Mr. Ellis supplies our founding history to the present time, addressing critical issues like race, equality, the law, and global reach.”

Books in this episode:

American Dialogue: The Founders and Us by Joseph Ellis

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
