Cover of We choose America, East Carolina University's literary contribution to the 1976 American Bicentennial. Written at the height of the Cold War, the volume pokes fun at Communism using the American view of perceived differences between life in the Soviet Union and the "blessings of our…way of life." The author of the work was Thomas A. Williams, a professor of Foreign Languages and Literature at East Carolina. The work is illustrated by Pulitzer Prize-winning Charlotte Observer cartoonist Eugene G. Payne, and the foreword was written by East Carolina University Chancellor Leo W. Jenkins.
