Professor Harvey Asher began writing AMERICA:  THE OWNER’S MANUAL in hopes of proving to his wife Sandy and others despairing over current events that our country is not going to hell in a handbasket. 

His approach to a variety of topics dealt with in the “manual” draws on his three dozen years as a history professor at Drury University in Springfield, MO.  An understanding of history, he believes, gives citizens a context into which they can place the latest headlines. 

The hoped-for result is a clear-eyed appreciation of trends, individual events, and of America itself.  These are not the best of times, nor are they the worst of times.  But they are OUR times, and they require our informed and thoughtful attention, analysis, and action.
