My new book, with Dave Dougherty, A Patriot's History of the Modern World, from America's Exceptional Ascent to the Atomic Bomb, 1898-1945 is out today. This is really volume one of a two-volume set, on sale everywhere including links from www.patriotshistoryusa.com
Vol. 2 will be out next year, A Patriot's History of the Modern World, vol. 2, from the Cold War to (I hope) Obama's Removal.
excellent! I have enjoyed your other works.
will need to pick this up.
As Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen proved in A Patriots History of the United States, history is even more fascinating when authors have no ideological axe to grind. With this wonderful, provocative, challenging page-fanning ride through the modern world, Schweikart and co-author Dave Dougherty have done it again, informing us, entertaining us, and deliciously standing political correctness on its headwhere it ought to be. David Limbaugh
"Schweikart and Dougherty examine nearly 50 years of growing American political and military mastery from the Spanish-American War to WWII. Choosing a theme of Yankee exceptionalism (with four pillars: common law, Protestantism, free market capitalism, and private property), the authors (Schweikart is a professor of history at the University of Dayton and coauthored The Patriots History Reader with Dougherty) make a convincing case for the series of trial-and-error achievements from Woodrow Wilsons League of Nations through Prohibition to the ultimate victory over Japan with the atomic bomb: Americas ascent to world power demonstrated that so long as the essence of American exceptionalism remained at the core of all efforts foreign and domestic, the likelihood of success was nearly guaranteed. There is a conservative slant on some issues, such as the criticism of FDRs New Deal, but the sections on Margaret Sangers embrace of eugenics (less well known than her birth control advocacy) and the rise of the fascists in Europe are noteworthy in their detail. Sweeping in scope and, as the title indicates, unapologetically patriotic, this book honors the American way at home and abroad with its firm emphasis on human dignity and prosperity.

Congrats man. Will check it out.
Who are the people on the cover of “American Entrepreneur” who are not Steve Jobs?
Thanks for the heads up LS! I will put it on my list. Good luck!
Bigtime congrats, LS!
Congratulations! What’s a guy gotta do to get his copy autographed by the author? :)
Congratulations and best wishes!
Is it available for Kindle or other e-book devices?
Thanks kindly for the heads-up. I keep a copy of PHOTUS in my office library and refer to it often. Great work.
Barnes & Noble has a Nook version listed. Not on the Kindle yet, but Larry's other books have Kindle versions.
I just downloaded the Nook sample. It claims it is 35 pages, but that might just be 35 Nook page with very large type.
This is as good.

I have the Kindle Touch. I have downloaded the Patriot’s History of the United States onto it from Audible (and I have a hard copy as well).
