really liked it

A history of the U.S. from 1930 to 1990. Focuses about equally on politics and cultural changes. Looks at how the government grew during the Depression, and the consequences of that growth later on. The author is conservative, but he avoids the shrillness that later came to characterize much conservative writing. I thought the information about American culture in the first half of the book was especially interesting. It seemed like the author became more and more centered on politics, to the exclusion of culture, as the book went on.
