Ambrose It's been a long time since I've read a book this bad. Ambrose is one of the most popular history writers in recent times, with biographies of Eisenhower and Nixon to go along with Band of Brothers.
This book is enough to make me not want to read any of his other works. The basic premise is that America is good. I believe in that. But it feels like Ambrose has gone completely over the edge to prove that fact. The tone of this book is "everything that any teacher has taught you about America or Americans being bad is completely wrong.
The Robber Barons who built the transcontinental railroads weren't crooks and didn't nearly become as filthy rich as everyone thinks they did.
And the American military spread democracy everywhere they went. He continually makes statements about the uniqueness of American freedom, and a little voice in the back of my head kept asking "does he really believe that Canadians are living in chains?
Ambrose comes across as a full-tilt patriot. That's fine, but it certainly robs him of a great deal of credibility.
I was shocked to read that when he was researching a World War II battle he had to be talked into speaking to the person who was commanding the Germans. He simply did not want to talk to a German soldier.
How can he write a real history of the battle if he will only talk to one side? It's not just the viewpoint that's off, sometimes the writing comes across as something you would expect from an eighth-grade history report, such as "only hatred as intense as the heat at the core of an active volcano could have caused that.
It was followed by a chapter on the changing roles of women in American society over the 20th century. For this he relied mainly upon the personal experiences of his mother and two wives. After reading through the second chapter, I had the strong suspicion that Ambrose had a such a poor chapter on racism because he had no close friends who were people of color who could actually explain what it was like to be not white his racism chapter more or less talked about African-Americans, ignoring the experiences of others.
One of the first things that Bill Ziegenhorn told me about teaching American history is that it is impossible to tell the story of America without telling the story of race in America. The more I've pondered this statement, the more truth I've found in it. Sadly, I don't think Ambrose really has a gut-level grasp on racism, and this is just another nail in the coffin.
Dorothy Parker once commented, "This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force. Gustavo Arellano I really wanted to like this book, I'm in its wheel-house. I was overjoyed when a taco truck established business a few blocks from my house.
When I last visited San Diego, I got a kick out of the fact that my hotel was next door to the original Rubio's. For crying out loud he opens with the space shuttle delivering Mexican food to the ISS, if that doesn't make me want to read a book, what will?
So let's start off with what was great about this book. Arellano is a gifted writer, his fantasy vs.
The corn had to be shucked, then left to soak overnight for the process of nixtamalization. From there, women - and, yes, always women - ground the flattened, blanched kernels in a metate.

Not fun, and women had to get up hours before sunrise just to make enough masa to feed the family for that day. He properly explains the explosion of X-berto's restaurants that seemed so odd to me when I lived in San Diego. That's something that came out of San Francisco.
He's done his homework, and carefully tells the stories of the rise and fall of food trends, and the establishment of the large "Mexican" fast-food chains.
