    American history was driven by clashes between those interested in preserving social order and those more interested in pursuing their own desires---the "respectable" versus the "degenerate", the moral versus the immoral. The more that "bad" people existed, resisted, and won, the greater was our common good. In A Renegade History of the United States, Russell introduces us to the origins of our nation's identity as we have never known them before.

    What disappointed you about A Renegade History of the United States?

    The whole stridency of the extra long prologue that made it impossible to get to the book. I probably agree with most of his points, but couldn't stand that he was so very, very one sided and polemic. There was no meat for the half hour long introduction .... so I tuned out.


    What was most disappointing about Thaddeus Russell’s story?

    Way too polemic, far too little meat.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Boehmer?

    Maybe.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not that I could see, in that I couldn't make it through the intro.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're going to write a book, don't turn off the reader with a highly polemic and unnecessary introduction. Just get on with it.
