- Rabbi Daniel Lapin: President, American Alliance of Jews and Christians

This is an amazing compendium of American history and culture. It is written in an easily read and understood format that allows the reader to open to any page and be able to follow what that page contains... This is a superb project that all Americans and wannebee Americans need to experience. We rated it a 5 heart score.

What every American should know about their country
America gets its power to govern from the people of the country. Those citizens need to know the basics of America's institutions, history, and documents to properly exercise their duties and obligations to vote responsibly and keep our country great. And with the surge in immigration into America, there is an increased need to educate everyone about our common traditions and civic values. Several organizations have given citizenship and civics tests to American citizens with dismal results--up to 70% failing the test in some cases with many not knowing what the Bill of Rights is.
The American Challenge addresses these concerns by offering a complete review of American history, civics, and culture. It is a unique collection of everything that makes America the great country that it is. It even includes the official U.S. Citizenship Test at the end with cross references to the relevant material. It is amply illustrated and includes material not found in other books. See the complete Table of Contents.

A challenge for all Book Groups!
Use The American Challenge in your book groups or study groups to learn about your country and test your knowledge in this important election year. Besides sample questions from the U.S. Citizenship Test, the guide has some fun trivia questions, a crossword puzzle, and a number of discussion questions.
