Recommends it for: Americans
Recommended to Erik by: no one
Shelves: history
The quality of this social history is comparable to William Manchester's The Glory and the Dream, which is to say that it is very good indeed, better even in one aspect in that it covers only twelve years rather than the four-plus decades assayed by Manchester. Otherwise the two are very comparable, both of them well-written, both thematically organized with an eye to 'present' relevance, both engagingly entertaining, both emphasizing the cultural over the--ultimately inescapable--political.
