The Great Upheaval: America and the Birth of the Modern World, 1788–1800 By Jay Winik

Presenter: 
Jay Winik
Duration: 
(00:29:20)

On April 16, 2008, Jay Winik delivered a lecture entitled “The Great Upheaval: America and the Birth of the Modern World, 1788–1800.” As the 1790s began, a fragile American republic took its first uncertain steps, the Russian empire expanded, and France plunged into revolution. Jay Winik’s new book, The Great Upheaval, illuminates how events in these three nations combined to change the course of civilization.

Mr. Winik is the author of the best-selling April 1865. (Introduction by Charles F. Bryan, Jr.)
