America has seen a multitude of transformations since its very founding. This book examines the period 1941-2001 during which time the character of American life changed rapidly, culminating in the shattering of the liberal Democratic coalition. Revolutions in the areas of affluence, foreign policy, the military, business system, racial relations, gender roles, sexual behavior and attitudes, and disregard for privacy are discussed. Rather than cite historical facts as they occurred, America Transformed analyzes them and offers a fresh and often controversial perspective. Abrams' draws on a wealth of published sources to highlight his original arguments on McCarthyism, the Cold War, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, and Johnson, to name a few topics. The synthesis of information and the depth of insight are simply unparalleled in any other book of American social history from 1941-2001.
