History and Progress: In Search of the European and American Mind
Praeger, 1989 - 442 páginas
The idea of progress forms the core History and Progress. Mathiopoulos shows that faith in progress and the desire for a better world have been the major stimuli for historical change in the modern world. She describes how Europe gave birth to this idea and throughout history became largely disenchanted with it. In contrast, the United States inherited this concept and has utilized it for over 200 years to maintain its sense of identity and self-awareness. History and Progress explains not only how the idea of progress inspired the founding of America, but how the concept provides momentum for the historical development of the nation to the present. In short, the 'American Dream' preserved the progressive optimism projected by the Enlightenment in the United States, even when it had since disappeared from European historical thought.
