Details
320 pages, November 2003. Shown: paperback cover.

Join our editor?Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian David Halberstam?and his personally selected wordsmiths as they take stock of the "American character." Halberstam suggests that "the American character has been shaped out of the rise of the meritocracy; the legendary events; the leaders, rogues, and icons that have left their mark on American mythology; and the cultural contributions that are uniquely American." Gathered under these themes are provocative original essays punctuated by superb images. You'll read about our revolutionary beginnings, fast food and air conditioning, Lindbergh crossing the ocean, John Ford and John Wayne movies, Margaret Sanger and the birth control pill, and much more!

Dimensions (in inches): 7 x 9
