Dreams in the New Century
Eminent Florida historian Dr. Gary Mormino illuminates early twenty-first-century Florida and its connections to some of the most significant events in contemporary American history in his newest book "Dreams in the New Century: Instant Cities, Shattered Hopes, and Florida’s Turning Point."

As Mormino shows, Florida is a place of deep conflicts—North and South, liberal and conservative, newcomer and local, growth and conservation—with histories that can be traced back centuries. In 2000-2010, Mormino argues, these tensions collided to produce a “Big Bang” that will continue to resonate in years to come. Mormino takes stock of this crucible of change and explains the social, cultural, and political intricacies of a state the world struggles to understand. "Dreams in the New Century" unravels Florida’s complicated recent history in a gripping, informative, and fascinating narrative.
