Product description

Review

"A detailed and compelling portrait. . . . It will force you to think about how America was made, and why." --The Boston Globe

"Comprehensive and sweeping. . . . Fascinating. . . . Kluger is a skilled and passionate storyteller." --Chicago Tribune

"Epic. . . . Brilliant. . . . Kluger limns colorful pen portraits of heroes and knaves both familiar and forgotten." --The Plain Dealer

"A well-crafted and readable narrative of this often sordid, sometimes forgotten side of the American past." --The Washington Post Book World

About the Author

Richard Kluger began his career as a writer and editor for The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, the (old) New York Post, and the New York Herald Tribune. After a book publishing career as an editor and executive, he turned to writing books fulltime with Simple Justice, on Brown v. Board of Education, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, as was his next book, The Paper: The Life and Death of the New York Herald Tribune. His most recent book, Ashes to Ashes: America's Hundred-Year Cigarette War, the Public Health, and the Unabashed Triumph of Phillip Morris, won the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction in 1997. He is the author or coauthor of eight novels as well.
