Description

How do you sum up a whole country in just 100 words? This striking book takes on the challenge! From amendment to Vegas, each of the carefully chosen 100 words has its own 100-word-long description and beautiful illustration, providing a potted insight of what the USA means to people today: its roots, its values, its culture and customs. Basically, everything you need to know in a nut shell.

Along with some expected words, such as liberty and constitution, you'll also find less predictable words that will give you a fresh perspective. With speech, learn about the right to freedom of speech enshrined in the First Amendment. Through Rosa, learn about the civil rights movement and the African American woman who became one its icons by refusing to give up her bus seat. With words like hamburger, Manhattan, blues, freedom, Hollywood, immigrant, protest, superhero, Moon, Texas and Washington, gain perspective on the many facets of American culture.

Finally, you'll be asked, ​‘If you were to choose the 100 words, which would you pick?’
