Magnificent summary of America in the 60's and '70's
on 3 November 2016
Simply superb. It took me months to read it but it was worth every minute. Put simply, this is a long, dense, epic description of how Americans split into two warring factions under Johnson and Nixon, factions that are still battling each other today. It completely changed how I viewed the sixties, a period I always thought I knew something about. Essential reading for anyone who wants to find out how American politics got to where it is today and for anyone who believes the sixties was an era of peace, love, hippies and Woodstock. There was so much more.
