About the Author
Neil Howe is a historian, economist, and demographer who writes and speaks frequently on generational change, American history, and long-term fiscal policy. He coauthored seven books with William Strauss, including Generations, 13th Gen, The Fourth Turning, and Millennials Rising. In 1991, Howe and Strauss coined the term "Millennial Generation." Howe's other books include On Borrowed Time (with Peter G. Peterson) and The Graying of the Great Powers (with Richard Jackson). He is managing director of demography for Hedgeye, an investment advisory firm. He is also a senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and at the Global Aging Institute. He grew up in California and holds graduate degrees in history and economics from Yale University. He lives with his family in Great Falls, Virginia.
"Arresting, mind-opening, and endlessly stimulating, The Fourth Turning Is Here is a monumental achievement. It's a big, complex, challenging book, daunting in its sweep and erudition, but well worth the effort."
--Amy Chua, Yale Law Professor and New York Times bestselling author of Political Tribes
"A vitally important book."
--Michael J. Meese, PHD, brigadier general, US Army (retired)

--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Far-ranging [and] intriguing."
--Publishers Weekly
"Driven by a deep sense that American democracy is at serious risk... [yet Howe predicts that] out of today's polarization and partisanship will come a new egalitarian, outward-facing, confident and unified America."
--Francis Fukuyama, The New York Times
"There is always profit in reading prophets.... The Fourth Turning Is Here is big history and bold futurology, and the closer it is to the present, the more reasonable it seems."
--The Wall Street Journal
"Riveting and revelatory... A road map to a future that's challenging yet also full of hope."
--Tony Robbins, New York Times bestselling author of Life Force
"Neil Howe is a genuis at mapping the present and future. This book explains how we arrived at today's era of crises, polarization, and conflicts. Fortunately, Howe also shows us the promised land that awaits on the other side."
--Jack A. Goldstone, Professor of Public Policy, George Mason Univeristy
"The most difficult thing in the world is to see history as we are living it, and no one does that with clearer eyes and a fuller heart than Neil Howe. The Fourth Turning is Here is a tour de force."
--Ben Hunt, creator of Epsilon Theory
"Neil Howe always sees things about America that other observers miss, harnessing a remarkable command of history and demography to help us think more clearly about current problems and summoning a remarkable imagination to help us envision the big changes ahead."
--Nicholas Eberstadt, political economist at the American Enterprise Institute
