Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a marvelous book. (Donald Grier Stephenson, Jr.)

This anthology, full of lively selections, is graced by a most perceptive introduction. Bresler's treatment of cultural themes, as exemplified by movies, novels, and popular songs, makes the volume particularly suitable for students who have grown up in a 'media age.' Indeed, professors might well want to steal material for their lectures. (Justus D. Doenecke)

A remarkable achievement. Bresler's work is original, unique, and balanced. His narrative covers the collapse of the American consensus as it emerged after World War II. In describing the seeds of discontent, Bresler tells a compelling story integrating popular culture and politics. It is finely crafted and supremely useful for teachers at nearly all levels. Even the most modest reference library will find this work essential. (James Nathan)

Bresler has put together a valuable collection of documents on U.S. political and cultural conflict from FDR's 1944 State of the Union address to Nixon's Watergate speech. This collection, with Bresler's thoughtful interpretive essay, introduces students to important themes for understanding modern America. (Barton J. Bernstein)
