American historian Eric Foner writes about how the idea of freedom in America has altered throughout history in one of his bestsellers, The Story of American Freedom. Prize winning Foner covers a long period of time of American history and expresses his thoughts in a remarkable way informing readers about the struggles America has suffered in the search of freedom. From beginning to end Foner argues about what the actual meaning of “freedom” is. To majority of Americans freedom means “independence” and “the power to be able to do whatever one wants.” According to Foner, freedom “embodies not a single idea but a complex of values,” he says, “it’s meaning is simultaneously an intellectual, social, economic, and political contest.” (Foner introduction xv) Foner does an outstanding job at changing the definition of freedom by proving his argument with factual information and stories from the past. Throughout the book, Foner uses many historical scenarios to provide readers with logical evidence to prove that freedom has a different meaning than we think.
