David Halberstam Author Biography
David Halberstam was one
of America's most distinguished journalists and historians, a man whose
newspaper reporting and books helped define the era we live in. He
graduated from Harvard in 1955, took his first job on the smallest daily in
Mississippi, and then covered the early civil rights struggle for the Nashville
Tennessean. He joined The New York Times in 1960, went overseas
almost immediately, first to the Congo and then to Vietnam. His early
pessimistic dispatches from Vietnam won him the Pulitzer in 1964 at the age of
thirty. Many of his books, including The Best and the Brightest, The Powers That Be, The Reckoning, and The Fifties,
have been national bestsellers.
