James T. Patterson, Professor of History, Brown University (Emeritus)
""Jim Patterson has done it again! Restless Giantis a worthy successor to his prize-winning Grand Expectations. Patterson writes with flair, an admirable sense of balance, and complete command of his sources. He covers the full gamut of American life; politics, economics, international affairs, race, sex, and the culture wars all get their due. Anyone wishing to understand modern America would do well to begin with this book."—Michael J. Klarman, author of the Bancroft Prize-winning From Jim Crow to Civil Rights"
