“Debut author Jennifer Blackburn claims two things are incontrovertible:”History repeats itself and change is constant.” She immediately challenges her audience with this paradox in her meticulous exploration of the current state of American politics, while exhorting readers to be change agents in redefining the “American Ideal.” …Through mixing history, anecdotes, and opinion, Blackburn skillfully combines America’s past with the present cultural moment.”—BookLife Reviews for Publishers Weekly
“The [New] New Patriotism” takes the reader on a journey of American history, circumstance, and perspective.
Stunning events of early 2020 provide context for an American culture that has required redirection for decades. Our society is slowly abdicating liberty to the very outlets promoting fear and division. Explore the dark truths Americans have struggled with for centuries and how a bold generation is redefining American culture and a new patriotism.
Jennifer Blackburn champions a remarkable country built on liberty and democracy. Her writing is a sobering reminder that change is constant, and history repeats itself as the world watches a communist superpower systematically repeat a history witnessed in Europe during the 1930s.
