Historian Garry Wills won a Pulitzer Prize in 1993 for his book Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words That Remade America and now he's back with a new book about how the atomic bomb transformed our nation.
Bomb Power: The Modern Presidency and the National Security State explores the ways in which the bomb helped expand the power of the American presidency and turn the United States into a national security state.
Wills is a cultural historian and adjunct professor at Northwestern University. He has won multiple National Book Critics Awards and writes for The New York Review of Books.
