What is behind the success of America? Does America manifest its destiny by other means? Author Patrick Mendis explores unseen forces that have guided America to global dominance. He details how the creation of Madison's 'Universal Empire' through Hamilton's 'Federalism' realizes Jefferson's 'Empire of Liberty.' The author then unveils America's Masonic endgame of universal brotherhood: E Pluribus Unum.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mendis changes the way we look at our history, policy and trade. -- Dr. Paula Stern, former chairwoman of the U.S. International Trade Commission
[This book] provides valuable insights for the student of history and the modern political leader alike...seen through the eyes of the Founding Fathers and the Masonic Architect of the Universe [from the foreword]. -- Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, president emeritus, The George Washington University
A unique and insightful analysis of the power of freedom... -- Senator Thomas Daschle, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader
Carefully researched and perceptive book... -- Congressman Robert Livingston, former Speaker-elect, U.S. Congress
The founders built an architecture for diversity. This book posits in the most intriguing way the roots of that design. -- Professor Ronald Heifetz, co-author of The Practice of Adaptive Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School and Cambridge Leadership Associates
[Mendis is] like Alexis de Tocqueville... -- Rear Admiral William Sizemore (Ret.), U.S. Navy
His eye-opening thesis [has] enormous relevance for today. -- Ambassador Frank Loy, former Undersecretary of State under President Bill Clinton
[He] has a clear and cogent message: America will succeed; it is embedded in our destiny. -- Ambassador Paula Dobriansky, former Undersecretary of State under President George W. Bush
Original and fascinating... -- James Fallows, The Atlantic Monthly and National Public Radio
Mendis goes beyond Dan Brown's Lost Symbol to disclose the true story of the fictional narrative. -- Masonic Grand Master Akram Elias, president and co-founder of Capital Communications Group; co-producer-with Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss-of Mr. Dreyfuss Goes to Washington
The US was destined and guided by a benevolent Providence to be a commercial rather than religious nation, a "philosophic empire" that would peacefully dominate the world, argues Mendis (George Mason Univ.). Its founding was rooted in the Freemason vision of a unitary God, the great architect of the universe. The Masonic origins of the nation's symbols and of the location and design of Washington, DC, are extensively documented here....It is a thorough exposition of this popularly held viewpoint. * CHOICE *
A masterful analysis of the role of international trade. -- Professor C. Ford Runge, University of Minnesota
A stunning exposition...with profound implications for remaking America's role in the world. -- Professor Laurence Simon, Brandeis University, Boston
This book picks up where Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol left off, giving readers a consummate guide to America and its secret mission in the world. In his foreword to the book, Professor Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, president emeritus of the George Washington University, writes: "Unlike Dan Brown in The Lost Symbol, Patrick Mendis has a serious scholarly purpose . . . seen through the eyes of the Founding Fathers and the Masonic Architect of the Universe." The architectural design of our nation's capital triangle is symbolically connected to the Arcturus, Leo, and Spica stars around the Virgo constellation in the Washington, D.C., sky above. In astrology, Virgo is ruled by Mercury-the Roman god of commerce, innovation, and communication. With this knowledge, the Founding Fathers discreetly but firmly located America's "Special Providence" within the powerful notion of commerce. * University of Minnesota Alumni Association *
