The story of our nation from the A-bomb to the iPhone-from bestselling historian H.W. Brands

With keen insight and an impeccable sense of the spirit of the times, H. W. Brands, one of today's preeminent historians, captures the American experience through the last six decades. As he chronicles politics, pop culture, and everything in between, Brands traces the changes we have gone through as a nation, recounting the great themes and events that have driven America- from the Yalta conference to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Apollo 11 to 9/11, My Lai to "shock and awe." In his adroit hands, movements and trends unfold through a character- driven narrative that shines a brilliant light on America's watershed moments and reveals a still unfolding legacy of dreams.
H.W. Brands is a professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin and the author of the Pulitzer Prize finalists Traitor to His Class and The First American, among others. He lives in Texas.
