Reviews

"A lucid history of the first decade of the 21st century, which set trends in motion that are with us today. A valuable road map that shows us how we got where we are today."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The first decade of the new millennium was an epochal "decade of disruption" as Garrett Peck convincingly describes it, setting the stage for the rise of Donald Trump in our current age of polarization and discord. A must read for anyone who wants to understand the opportunities, challenges and fault-lines facing America and the world today, and how we got here."--Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class "Kirkus Reviews"
"The story traces America's journey from geopolitical isolation to engagement and back to a more committed isolation--a retrenchment that Peck considers a mistake. Peck shares plenty of details worthy of their own histories."--Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class "The Washington Post [praise for Garrett Peck's The Great War in America.]"
"Peck's pointillist picture of America on the home front will be sure to interest World War I buffs."--Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class "The Wall Street Journal [praise for Garrett Peck's 'The Great War in America."
