Reviews

"I can think of no American historian of the current era who more powerfully captures the way myth has informed consciousness in shaping the American worldview since the founding."-Mark Lytle, Bard College -- Mark Lytle
"Patrick Smith's is a brilliant and profound meditation on the relationship of modern Americans to their history and their myths, the best book anyone has written on the United States as it today exists. A work that will last."-William Pfaff, author of The Irony of Manifest Destiny. -- William Pfaff
"An extremely ambitious book, Time No Longer brings together ideas about contemporary American politics and foreign policy with deep questions about the character and destiny of American society and some important ideas about how American attitudes to historical time will have to change. Patrick Smith makes a case that is bound to be controversial, but makes it bravely, thoughtfully and well. This should be an influential contribution to important national political and cultural debates."-Godfrey Hodgson, author of The Myth of American Exceptionalism -- Godfrey Hodgson

"An exceptionally insightful approach that gets well beyond the usual yes/no declinist discourse, and challenges the American exceptionalism frame, in ways that are both historically informed and geared to the challenges of this new century and the need for 'a new idea of ourselves.'"-Bruce W. Jentleson, Duke University

-- Bruce W. Jentleson
"Controversial and thought-provoking."-Kirkus Reviews
