  The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood, by iconic science writer James Gleick, is easily the most ambitious, compelling, insert-word-of-intellectual-awe-here book to read this year. Intellectual history is an intriguing field because it is by its very nature cross-disciplinary.

The movement united dissimilar personalities such as the colorful John O'Sullivan and the patrician Evert A. Source for information on Young America: American History Through Literature dictionary.
