“Combining the objectivity of the historian with the personal insights of a son, Bill Link has written an engaging account of his father, the eminent historian Arthur Link, and his mother, Margaret, a scholar in her own right and who with devotion and kindness raised a family of four children. Along the way we encounter Senators George McGovern and Bill Bradley, students of the elder Link, as well as his dear friend and colleague the iconic historian John Hope Franklin. Anyone interested in the American South, the history profession, the politics of higher education, and the triumphs and tragedies of a notable American family will want to read this book.”—Steven F. Lawson, Professor Emeritus, Rutgers University
“Links is a beautifully evocative, richly detailed account of the personal histories and half-century-long partnership of Margaret and Arthur Link, two remarkable individuals who happen to be the parents of the highly accomplished, clear-eyed, deeply insightful author.”—Nancy Weiss Malkiel, Princeton University
“The story of two remarkable people and their journey through life, of how they formed a unique partnership, based on a deep love and mutual respect, that enabled Arthur Link to become one of the most productive and accomplished historians of his generation.”—Charles E. Neu, Brown University
Arthur Link (1920–1998) was one of the great historians of his generation, a prolific author with a wide following inside and outside the profession. For many years the foremost authority on Woodrow Wilson, he wrote a five-volume biography of the president and edited a sixty-nine volume edition of Wilson’s papers.
