About the Book

What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism

At a moment of crisis over our national identity, venerated journalist Dan Rather has emerged as a voice of reason and integrity, reflecting on --- and writing passionately about --- what it means to be an American. Now, with this collection of original essays, he reminds us of the principles and freedoms that define us. He traces where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions. With a fundamental sense of hope, instant bestseller WHAT UNITES US is the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are, finally, one.
“Interweaving sweet personal stories with history, [Rather] makes a simple, compelling case for America …These essays sound alarm bells but cohere into a clear-eyed love letter to U.S.A. A tonic for disaffected millennials and conservative grandpas alike.” -- People Book of the Week
