Henry Adams had a presidential pedigree, and in his lifetime he saw America transition from a former colony to an industrial powerhouse. And though he was an aristocrat, he warned about our day, when we are addicted to the technology that gives us so much power. He wouldn't be surprised at all that we can't go anywhere without our cell phones. Guest: David Brown, Professor of History at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, and author of "The Last American Aristocrat: The Brilliant Life and Improbable Education of Henry Adams"
