Thursday, April 20, 7:00PM
The Land of Enterprise,
new, gripping history of America-told through the executives, bankers, farmers, and politicians who paved the way from colonial times to the present-reveals that this country was founded as much on the search for wealth and prosperity as the desire for freedom. Waterhouse's new book is not only a comprehensive look into our past achievements, but offers clues as to how to confront the challenges of today's world: globalization, income inequality, and technological change.

is a historian of 20th century American politics, business, and capitalism. He is associate professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
