"Larry Samuel takes us over the landscape of the American Dream, a territory that shifts from fresh to fantastic, from bold to downtrodden in the eight decades since James Truslow Adams minted the phrase. A compelling study of how we have made ourselves through an idea that no one can completely define but everyone wants a piece of."—Kenneth Lipartito, Florida International University

"Samuel’s book provides a must read for anyone wishing to know how the changing face of the Dream has informed politics, everyday life and even the nation’s identity itself."—Lary May, author of The Big Tomorrow: Hollywood and the Politics of the American Way

"Samuel has provided a fascinating survey of our culture and character, documenting that always elusive definition of just who exactly we really are as a people."—John Zogby, author of The Way We’ll Be: The Zogby Report on the Transformation of the American Dream
