Overtly sensitive Republicans might hate this book, but it is a good historical perspective on the contradictory entity that is the United States. It is also a great book to read in light of the Impeachment trials since it discusses the Andrew Johnson impeachment, the Nixon resignation (whose abuse of power was so pronounced that he was a military advisor away from being one of those third world dictators.) as well as the idiocy of the Senate throughout history. There is criticism of bias, however this is the same bias that Gronick shows throughout Cartoon History of the Universe without criticism (not many fans of Alexander the Great or Julius Ceasar around these days, although the Jesus cartoons from that book should annoy almost any Christian).
My main problem is that the artwork is too sketchy. It seems like it was hastily scribbled, and the quality of the storytelling isn't as pronounced as in his other books.
