Summary "Rereading America takes on the myths that dominate U.S. culture--myths about family, education, technology, success, gender roles, and race--and asks you to examine your own assumptions about them. The writers included here challenge you to become a critical thinker with the ability not only to absorb knowledge but to create it." -- Back cover.
