Review:

"A fascinating cultural history. . . .A major work by a leading historian at the top of his game--at once engaging and tightly argued. Like the best histories, it is also a book that speaks to our own time."--"The New York Times Book Review"

"Jackson Lears is one of the few pre-eminent historians of our time. As we dream for a rebirth of America in the age of Obama, this magnificent and magisterial book on the making of modern America could not be more timely. Don't miss it!"--Cornel West

"High-concept cultural history at its provocative best. Lears is a polymath and Big Thinker."--"American History"

"Jackson Lears, America's premier cultural historian, has written the smartest and most illuminating survey of this roaring, perplexing era since Richard Hofstadter's The Age of Reform."--Michael Kazin, author of A Godly Hero: The Life of William Jennings Bryan and professor of history, Georgetown University

"Jackson Lears is a formidable, compellingly original cultural and intellectual historian. . . . Rebirth of a Nation is Lears' most ambitious work yet, and it builds brilliantly on his earlier projects. . . . Lears' convincing new narrative of this pivotal half century never falters."--Tim Rutten, The Los Angeles Times

"In this sweeping and charged history, Jackson Lears brilliantly evokes a defining era in American history. He recasts what we have blandly called the 'Gilded Age, ' revealing a time of profound change, sharp conflict, and enduring consequence."--Edward L. Ayers, University of Richmond

"A remarkable book. . . . As Jackson Lears demonstrates again, he is one of the best of his (and my) generation of historians."--David Nasaw, The American Prospect

"Jackson Lears has become the historian of American yearning. . . . He excels at the miniature portrait, and his richly associative imagination enables him to make telling use of the Cecil B. De Mille-sized case he assembled for Rebirth of a Nation."--Patricia O'Toole, The American Scholar

"In Rebirth of a Nation, Jackson Lears, our most stimulating historian of American culture, outdoes himself, offering a stunning interpretive synthesis on politics, culture, and social upheaval in the pivotal half-century when ideals of regeneration assumed their modern shape, sometimes as imperial bombast, sometimes as designs for reform."--Todd Gitlin
