Content descriptions

Bibliography: Includes bibliographical references (pages 267-275) and index.
Contents: The land of the dream. -- The most likely to succeed. -- New places, names, selves. -- Boom land. -- The great lottery. -- An alien power. -- The culture of flight. -- Fleeing the nest. -- Conclusion: Are Americans ready to settle down?
Summary: In Restless Nation, James M. Jasper isolates a narrative that lies very close to the core of the American character. From colonial times to the present day, Americans have always had a deep-rooted belief in the "fresh start"--A belief that still has Americans moving from place to place faster than the citizens of any other nation.
