The Commandments: America’s Ultimate Top Ten List

Historian Jenna Weissman Joselit explores America’s unique attraction to this ancient biblical text. Her 2017 book Set in Stone: America’s Embrace of the Ten Commandments illustrates how the decrees have popped up in nearly all aspects of American culture.
