Summary What are we to look for in heroes who walk among us today? And what are we to expect of our heroes as we prepare for an uncertain future? Peter H. Gibbon traces the evolution of our collective vision of greatness from the age of our founders to today's celebrity-obsessed media age. He concludes that, though reverence for ideals may have eroded along the way, we now have a unique opportunity to forge a new understanding of what it means to be a hero.
