From the UC Berkeley Webcast site: Famed for the depth of his thought and the gracefulness of his writing, Garry Wills has penned more than 30 celebrated and sometimes contentious books on American culture, Catholicism, and politics. His Lincoln at Gettysburg?a close textual analysis of the Gettysburg Address?won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. One of today's most prominent cultural historians, he is also a frequent contributor to the nation's foremost newspapers and magazines. In spellbinding language, Wills moves with ease between American politics, ancient history, and medieval philosophy, and "his thinking often takes him, and us, to unexpected and delightful places" (New York Newsday).

Presented in association with the College of Letters & Science's On the Same Page program.
