Jon Meacham—The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels
Galvanized by the growth of nationalism, racism, and hatred in our time, Pulitzer Prize-winner Jon Meacham has written a serious but hopeful assessment of the long American struggle with "anger, intolerance, and extremism." He takes us on a moving and profoundly informative tour of our nation's history, from the founding through the modern civil rights struggle, highlighting the many times when it seemed that the American vision and, indeed, the American soul might be lost. Each crisis, however, called forth individuals, groups, and ideals
that pushed back the ugly tide. It's neither a pretty nor a perfect story; but it offers powerful reasons for hope. The subtitle of The Soul of America evokes Lincoln's celebrated First Inaugural Address and its closing call to
"the better angels of our nature." Those angels, Meacham argues, have never deserted us.
