This America: The Case for the Nation
“The most prolific, nimble, and interesting writer of American history today, vigorously kicking at the past until she dislodges it from the ossifying grip of received wisdom.” The Washington Post
Leave it to Jill Lepore to offer a magisterial account of the rise of America and an urgent reckoning with the beauty and tragedy of our divided nation. The latest masterpiece from the award-winning Harvard historian, New Yorker staff writer and bestselling author of books including The Secret History of Wonder Woman, These Truths explores our past in order to understand the present and prepare for our future. At a time of much despair over the future of liberal democracy, Lepore’s newly-released follow-up, This America, makes a stirring case for the nation.
