Search - List of Books by David Hackett Fischer

David Hackett Fischer (born December 2, 1935) is University Professor and Earl Warren Professor of History at Brandeis University. Fischer's major works have tackled everything from large macroeconomic and cultural trends (Albion's Seed, The Great Wave) to narrative histories of significant events (Paul Revere's Ride, Washington's Crossing) to explorations of historiography (Historians' Fallacies, in which he coined the term Historian's fallacy).

He is best known for his major study Albion's Seed, which argued that core aspects of American culture stem from four British folkways and regional cultures, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington's Crossing , a narrative of George Washington's leadership of the Continental Army during the winter of 1776-1777 during the American Revolutionary War.

In 2008 he published Champlain's Dream, an exploration of Samuel de Champlain, the French explorer and founder of Quebec City.

Fischer received a B.A. from Princeton University and a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University. He received the 2006 Irving Kristol Award from the American Enterprise Institute. He was admitted as an honorary member of The Society of the Cincinnati in 2006.
