About The Author
ImageAnne R. Pierce is an independent scholar, author and Acquisitions Editor at Transaction, an independent publisher of social-scientific books. She holds a PhD from the University of Chicago. Anne is a big-picture thinker with broad interests in history, politics, psychology, and philosophy. She is especially fascinated with periods of upheaval and transition in American life.

In her work, she explores the ways in which Americans have created change and adapted to change, and how they have defined and responded to modernity. She is acutely aware of what we have lost as well as what we have gained in any particular transition period.

In addition to her latest book, Ships Without A Shore: America’s Undernurtured Children, Pierce has written Woodrow Wilson and Harry Truman: Mission and Power in American Foreign Policy. She has also published articles in World & I, Society, and McGraw-Hill's compilation books: The Family and Human Development.
