Synopsis: Upon its first publication, A Different Mirror was hailed by critics and academics everywhere as a dramatic new retelling of our nation's past. Beginning with the colonization of the New World, it recounts the history of America in the voice of the non-Anglo peoples of the United States?Native Americans, African Americans, Jews, Irish Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and others?groups who helped create this country's rich mosaic culture.

From the role of black soldiers in preserving the Union to the history of Chinese Americans from 1900 to 1941, from an investigation into the issue of "illegal" immigrants from Mexico to a look at the sudden visibility of Muslim refugees from Afghanistan, Takaki's work is a remarkable achievement that grapples with the raw truth of American history and examines the ultimate question of what it means to be an American.

About the Author: Ronald Takaki (1939&8211;2009) was the author of books including A Different Mirror, A Larger Memory, and Iron Cages, and is often cited as the father of multicultural studies in America.
A veteran of stage and screen, Peter Berkrot held feature roles in Caddyshack and Showtime's Brotherhood, and his audiobooks include The Woods by Harlan Coben and Country Driving by Peter Hessler. Library Journal described Peter's narration of When the Whistle Blows by Fran Cannon Slayton as "a brilliant job of personalizing each of the men in Jimmy's life."
