I included image screenshots of Chapter 3 of "The American Dream" by Jim Cullen. There are a total of 43 image screenshots of Chapter 3 but since I could only upload 20 files in the order form I added the remaining 23 screenshots on the link of the "DropMeFiles"

Thank you so much for your time
The phrase, “American dream” is one of the most common national lexica. For individuals in America, the dream defines the aspirations of the nation. The American dream has over time been associated with economic prosperity and freedom. The belief that anyone can succeed regardless of their color, race and country of origin has shaped the modern understanding of the dream. American has been termed as a land of opportunities. The desire for upward social mobility has caused people to care less about the origin of the American dream. Individuals are seldom familiar with the background and history of the American dream. Different generations in America have varying perceptions of what the American dream entails. Jim Cullen offers an in-depth analysis of the origin of the American dream and what it meant to previous generations. For instance, both the Puritans and the African Americans dreamed of freedom. However, to the Puritans, freedom was spiritual, while the African Americans sought from the oppression of the whites. Hence, it is remarkable to note how the understanding of the American dream differs from one group to another.
