Brinkley's The Publisher To Be Featured at BHC Roundtable

The Publisher: Henry Luce and His American Century (Knopf, 2010), by Alan Brinkley, Allan Nevins Professor of History at Columbia University, will be the focus of a roundtable discussion at the upcoming BHC meeting. The book, which is not only a biography, but an examination of Luce's impact on the magazine publishing industry and on America's self-image, has received widespread media attention. It has been reviewed extensively, including in the New York Times Sunday Book Review (accompanied by a podcast interview with Brinkley) and by Janet Maslin in "Books of the Times"; in The Economist, The Atlantic, the Wall Street Journal, and by NPR's "Fresh Air." Professor Brinkley can be seen discussing the book with Sam Tanenhaus on C-Span's BookTV (and on C-Span again at the 2010 OAH meeting), and at Yale University via YouTube. There is also an interview with NPR's "On the Media," which can be read or heard, and one with Bloomberg's Lewis Lapham.
  For more about the BHC meeting, which will be held in St. Louis March 31-April 2, 2011, please see our meeting website.
