Product Description

In this wide-ranging cultural and political history redefines a misunderstood decade, Prize-winning historian Jefferson Cowie produces a remarkable account of how working –class America hit the rocks in the political and economic upheavals of the 1970s. Edgy and incisive – part political intrigue, part labor history, with large doses of American music, film, and television lore – Cowie, with “an ear for the power and poetry of vernacular speech” reveals America’s fascinating path from the rising incomes and optimism of the new Deal to the widening economic inequalities and dampened expectations of the present. Notes, Index.
