By affirming the relativity of the American historical imagination, political theorist Michael J. Shapiro offers a powerful polemic against ethnocentric interpretations of American culture and politics. ""Deforming American Political Thought"" analyzes issues that range from the nature of Thomas Jefferson's vision of an egalitarian nation to the persistence of racial inequality. Shapiro demonstrates how history, architecture, film, music, literature, and art are valuable resources that help us comprehend several viewpoints of American political thought from the founding to the present. Exploring such diverse works as slave narratives, contemporary films, genre fiction, and blues and jazz music, Shapiro reveals that there have always been dissenting voices casting doubt on the moral purpose and exceptionalism of the American mind. This book will reinvigorate discussions about the essence of American political thought.
