Last night I watched the After Words: The Idea of America, with Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Gordon Wood, C-SPAN session, on TV. The program description is shown next:
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Gordon Wood presented a series of essays that examines the underpinnings of the American Revolution. Mr. Wood explored the origins of American exceptionalism, the Founders’ belief in the universality of the revolution, and the radicalism of republicanism in the 18th century. Gordon Wood discussed his essays in conversation with author and historian Jay Winik at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The session lasted 1 hour 20 minutes.
