Kennedy has written about a broad range of subjects in American history. His 1970 book, Birth Control in America: The Career of Margaret Sanger explored the medical, legal, political, and religious dimensions of the subject and helped to pioneer the emerging field of women's history. Over Here: The First World War and American Society used the history of American's involvement in World War I to analyze American culture in the early twentieth century. Freedom from Fear: The American People in Depression and War vividly recounts the nation's encounter with the two great crises of the Great Depression and World War II. Kennedy is also the co-author of a best-selling textbook in American history, The American Pageant, now in its twelfth edition. He is currently working on a book entitled The Americans, an examination of the distinctive features of the American historical experience.
Birth Control in America was honored with both the John Gilmary Shea Prize and the Bancroft Prize. Over Here was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
