by BruceHH on Mar 21, 2009

This book reviews 13 books that the author feels affected American society, tho' he confesses others feel differently and that he could have easily chosen others. In fact, he includes a 100 more in an annotated bibliography. For each of the 13 books he has a 4 part essay. The first part gives a general introduction to the essay followed by a discussion of the author and the times in which the work was written. He then goes through the work and concludes with his perceptions on how it affected society.
