El Paso Natural Gas Conference Center, UTEP Campus

From the American Revolution to the fifty-year struggle with communism and conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, From Colony to Superpower tells the dramatic story of America’s emergence as superpower–its birth in revolution, its troubled present, and its uncertain future. The book was published in 2008 in Oxford University Press’s prestigious History of the United States Series. It was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in non-fiction.

George C. Herring received a B.A. degree from Roanoke College and after service in the U.S. Navy earned M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Virginia. He is a specialist in the history of U.S. foreign relations and has received National Endowment for the Humanities, Fulbright, and Guggenheim fellowships. In October 2004, he was a resident at the Rockefeller Study Center in Bellagio, Italy. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Otago in New Zealand, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and the University of Richmond.
