Description
(1981 Pulitzer Prize Finalist) World War I presented the United States with one of its most wrenching crises, and also left a residue of disruption and disillusion that spawned an even more ruinous conflict scarcely a generation later, argues David Kennedy, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Freedom from Fear: The American People in Depression and War, 1929–1945. Originally published in 1980, Over Here provides a thorough, in-depth discussion of the impact of World War I on American society. As Kennedy explains, the ways in which America mobilized for the war, chose to fight it, and then went about the business of enshrining it in memory all indicate important aspects of enduring American character. This 25th-anniversary edition includes an afterword that reveals Kennedy's reasons for writing the original edition and his opinions on the legacy of Wilsonian idealism, most recently reflected in George W. Bush's national security strategy.

"This is one of those rare books rich with ideas that provide the mind with genuinely new perceptions."—American Heritage
