The book focuses on the period’s fierce conflicts over race, sex and war. Boyle captures the inspiring and brutal events of this passionate time with a remarkable empathy that restores the humanity of those making this history.

Slevin is a professor at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, a contributing writer for The New Yorker, and author of “Michelle Obama: A Life.”
