Americans and the California Dream RSS

Kevin Starr's passionate and ambitious cultural history of the Golden State.

"Twenty-four years after his first volume appeared, Starr's enthusiasm still bubbles from virtually every page. His command of hundreds of works of fiction, buildings, pieces of art, and scores of fascinating characters, the well-known and the obscure, and the intelligence and skill with which he handles this freight train worth of material is amazing." - San Francisco Chronicle review of The Dream Endures

"Kevin Starr gives Californians back their past - from science to art and from environmental awareness to an infatuation with the automobile - by reminding them how the state evolved from a West Coast outback to the center of American civilization." - The San Diego Union-Tribune review of The Dream Endures

Kevin Starr, University Professor and Professor of History, University of Southern California, and State Librarian of California Emeritus

Kevin Starr's Americans and the California Dream series has earned him the National Medal for the Humanities, the Centennial Medal of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Harvard University, the Gold Medal of the Commonwealth Club of California, a Guggenheim fellowship, and election to the Society of American Historians.
