David Reynolds' award-winning 90-episode radio series traces the story of the United States from its founding to the present. Propelled by the voices of those who lived America's history, this epic narrative explores three enduring themes-empire, liberty, and faith. Liberty & Slavery (Volume 1) shows how the nation expanded to cover a continent. Power & Progress (Volume 2) continues the story from the Civil War through World War II. And Empire & Evil (Volume 3) traces U.S. history from the Cold War to the election of Barack Obama. "Reynolds' presentation combines enthusiasm with authority, and his insightful and far-ranging text is augmented by a wealth of archive voices, from speeches to people in the streets."-Oldie "The interwoven voices and news reports of the time . make for striking immediacy."-Observer
