Glory and the Dreamby William Manchester
THE GLORY AND THE DREAM: A NARRATIVE HISTORY OF AMERICA 1932-1972 is history at its most detailed and finest. It covers an incredible array of the "major events, sensational happenings, and news-making personalities from the Great Depression through the second inauguration of Richard M. Nixon." By no means, a stark, dry collection of minutiae, Manchester breathes life into the great periods of America's growth.
"Manchester has an uncanny ability to give his readers an almost tactile sense of the past and to make them feel. 'So that's how it was!'" (Christian Science Monitor)
