Summary
  • "Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment in American politics and life by looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear"--
  • "The current climate of partisan fury is not new, and in The Soul of America, Meacham shows us how what Lincoln called the "better angels of our nature" have won the day. Painting surprising portraits of Presidents ... and others, and illuminating the courage of ... influential citizen activists, ... Meacham brings vividly to life turning points in American history."--
