Book News Annotation:

This commemorative volume of one of this country's most respected, left-leaning monthlies begins with a foreword by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., followed by an introduction/history by editor, Lewis H. Lapham (also appearing in the June 2000 issue), and then proceeds by decades, from the 1850s to the 1990s with 133 articles by authors like Melville, Hawthorne, Greeley, Hardy, Kipling, Faulkner, David Foster Wallace, and Joyce Carol Oates. This large and handsome volume is peppered with b&w photos and illustrations, and is an enjoyable-yet-sophisticated approach to American history—literary, social, and political. Indexed by title and author.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The American experience is explored through this collection of the magazine's best reports, poetry, fiction, commentary, speeches and humorous writings--from authors ranging from Mark Twain to Annie Dillard. 200+ illustrations.
