- MY ACCOUNT
Links: My Family in American History offers a moving and unsentimental biography of Link’s parents – two individuals who experienced the intense change and tumult of the South during the mid-twentieth century. Stretching from North Carolina to Princeton, and from Evanston to Oxford, Links connects past and present, north and south, parent and child.
Drawing from a rich trove of letters, interviews with friends and family, and unique insights, Link offers a highly detailed, evocative portrait of the coming of age and lifelong partnership of his parents. Links combines the objectivity and critical judgment of the professional historian with the subjectivity and deep emotional connection of the memoirist who participated directly in part of the story.
William A. Link is the Richard J. Milbauer Professor of History at the University of Florida. He is the author of numerous books, including Righteous Warrior: Jesse Helms and the Rise of Modern Conservatism and William Friday: Power and Purpose in American Higher Education.
