Author Info
Douglas Brinkley
Douglas Brinkley received his Ph.D. from Georgetown University. While a professor at Hofstra University on Long Island, Brinkley had the brilliant idea of taking a class of undergraduates across America by bus, stopping at historic sites and literary landmarks along the way, while reading classic novels and listening to classic rock. The students visited the home of William Faulkner, met the writer William Burroughs, and listened to Brinkley lecture in situ--all for course credit. This amazing journey became his book THE MAJIC BUS. Brinkley has written standard historical studies of figures such as Dean Acheson and James Forrestal, and biographies of Bill Clinton and Rosa Parks. He taught for several years at the University of New Orleans, and that experience informs his post-Katrina book, THE GREAT DELUGE. Brinkley is one of America's more popular and public historians, writing for magazines, appearing on television, and speaking on NPR. His vision of American history is generous and wide-reaching: he has edited the journals of Jack Kerouac, the letters of Hunter S. Thompson, and the diaries of Ronald Reagan.
"This slim volume is heavily footnoted but a fast read. It moves briskly from Ford's the memorial service at Washington's National Cathedral...."
