John Lukacs was born in Hungary and came to the United States in 1946. Now emeritus, he was a visiting professor at various universities. The recipient of the 1991 Ingersoll Prize, he is the author of over 18 books. Broad Street Review calls him 'the best-known historian in Pennsylvania, and one of the few historians with a national and international reputation beyond narrow academic circles.' He lives in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
