Summary
America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960s is the definitive interpretive survey of the political, social, and cultural history of 1960s America. Written by two top experts on the era, this book provides a compelling tale of this tumultuous decade filled with fresh and persuasive insights. Arguing that the period marked the end of the country's two-century-long ascent toward widespread affluence, domestic consensus, and international hegemony, the authors take readers on a tour of the turbulent decade, exploring what did and did not change in the 1960s and why American culture and politics have never been the same since. Isserman and Kazin offer the most sophisticated understanding available of the key developments of the decade and break new ground with their careful attention to every aspect of the political and cultural spectrum
