A Pulitzer Prizewinning 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 AmericaExperiment vs. Destinythrough 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 could lead to a revolution in American political cycles. ';Whatever the nation's political future, it can benefit from the intelligence and regard for our country's best traditions evident in these informed and humane essays.' TheNew York Times ';Displays the author at his best: trenchant, erudite, crisp.' Foreign Affairs ';An excellent and provocative primer on the challenges surrounding the contemporary American political setting... First-rate history mixed with a strong sense of public service.' The Christian Science Monitor
