The Untied States of America

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in Books (other)

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

Enriquez illustrates that nations beset with problems from within are always susceptible to break-up … he focuses on the United States but also gives illustrations from Canada and Mexico….

The book format is quite interesting… it uses a 'staccato' form … with a lot of punch given through data, quotes, and sometimes just raw speculation… in a variety of type faces and spacing/blocking formats…. this leads to a book that is a very quick read … but don't be fooled by this as there is a lot here to think about …

Enriquez' warning?  …. even the United States may not be immune from secession pressures over the course of the next fifty years. 
My ranking **** see this on Amazon –>
