American culture war

...can be construed as a conflict between Yankee Puritan nobility and Barbadian Southern nobility.  That's pretty interesting!  Two books to read:

  • Albion's Seed - examines four British cultures in America; the first volume of a new history of America
  • American Nations - a more detailed analysis of eleven regional American cultures.
Both sound utterly fascinating; neither is available in ebook format.
