The 10 best new history books

At the Independent, Samuel Muston tagged the 10 best new history books.

One title on the list:
Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Nelson Johnson

Nelson Johnson's tale of Atlantic City's rise from small seaside resort to modern-day Gomorrah is as good, if not better, than the television series.
Read about another book on the list.
