Dr. Skousen spent decades reading and researching America's founding principles. "The Making of America" is all about the world's greatest political success formula. In a little over a century, this formula allowed a small segment of the human family-- less than 6 percent -- to become the richest nation on earth. It allowed them to originate more than half of the world's total production and enjoy the highest standard of living in the history of the world.
"In this book we tell the Founding Fathers' story. Much of it is told in the works of the Founders themselves. The reader can feel the power of their minds sweeping away centuries of bad government and bad laws to formulate a whole new society based on human freedom."
