Pulitzer Prize–winning author Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment in American politics by looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear. Our current climate of partisan fury is not new, and in The Soul of America, Meacham shows us how what Abraham Lincoln called the “better angels of our nature” have repeatedly won the day. Painting surprising portraits of Lincoln and other presidents, and illuminating influential citizen activists as Martin Luther King, Jr. and civil rights pioneers Rosa Parks and John Lewis, Meacham outlines key turning points in American history. In this inspiring book, Meacham reassures us, “…that we have come through such darkness before”—as, time and again, Lincoln’s better angels have found a way to prevail.
