The Jazzmen: How Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Count Basie Transformed America

A refreshing and attentive suite of composite portraits for jazz fans and readers interested in the intersection of art, culture, and politics in the 20th-century United States.

Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy

Often previously studied, McCarthy’s career and consequences merit this additional analytical treatment that will satisfy curious readers of history. A definitive biography that will stand the test of time.

Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon

This absorbing narrative would have been even better if Tye included his summation of Kennedy's legacy. It is a worthy successor to Evan Thomas's Robert Kennedy: His Life. [See Prepub Alert, 1/25/16.]


Tye is an excellent storyteller, and this work is thoroughly researched. The result is a rich history full of lively heroes and villains—much like a comic book. Essential for Superman fans and popular culture historians.
