America: a Conflicted Nation is a discussion of issues about which Americans feel conflicted, which is about feeling positive and negative about something at the same time and being unable to shake off the uncomfortable feeling it produces. For instance, we are conflicted about immigration and our military. While we are enormously proud of our immigrant history, we are fearful of letting in large numbers of new immigrants because of the potential for having terrorists among them. Also, we all agree it is necessary to have a strong, world class military, but we don’t agree on how much of our national treasure should be invested in it.

Many Americans feel conflicted about our country’s role in the world, as well as how we address national issues that affect only our own residents. America is truly an extraordinary country; but there are many things that leave us feeling uneasy, and this book discusses why that is so and how we can still feel good about our country.
