|Pulitzer Prize–winning historian discusses "the Cold War, political parties, the presidency, and many broader philosophical issues [with] incisive wit" (Library Journal).|
A celebrated historian, speechwriter, and adviser to President Kennedy, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. draws on decades of astute observation to construct a dialectic of American politics, or as Time magazine called it, a "recurring struggle between pragmatism and idealism in the American soul."
The Cycles of American History traces two conflicting visions of America—Experiment vs. Destiny—through two centuries of political evolution, conflict, and progress. In this updated edition, Schlesinger reflects on the dawn of a new millennium and how new social and technological revolutions coul... ()d lead to a revolution in American political cycles.
