The Penguin History of the United States of AmericaBook - 2001
This celebrated one-volume history has established itself as the definitive and most readable work available on America, brilliantly capturing the dynamic events and personalities that shaped the nation's triumphant progress from its earliest colonization up to the fall of President Nixon. Now, in this new edition, Hugh Brogan continues the story through to the close of the Reagan era and the end of the Cold War, a time of radical change which has made America the global superpower of today- in his words, 'for good and evil, a power and civilization that surpasses...all empires of the past'. There are also numerous revisions to earlier chapters, taking into account the most up-to-date research into American history.
