Summary, etc.: Hugh Brogan's The Penguin History of the USA has established itself as the definitive and most readable work available on America. It brilliantly captures the dynamic events and personalities that shaped the nation's triumphant progress to global superpower: in Brogan's words, "for good and evil, a power and civilization that surpasses ... all empires of the past." In this new edition, Brogan makes numerous revisions to earlier chapters, taking into account the most up-to-date research into American history.
