Pivotal Moments in American History RSS

This series presents short books about crucial events and people in history. Each book in the series addresses a major historical problem or theme through the study of one particular moment in our past, focusing on how individuals shaped the course of events, while placing those events within a wider historical context. While many of the subjects are familiar, these books offer fresh interpretations based on new sources, new perspectives, or new combinations. The series seeks to unite the old and the new history, combining the insights and techniques of recent historiography with the power of traditional narrative.
