Reviews in American History
Most of us think of the s as an "in-between" decade, the uninspiring years that happened to fall between the excitement of the s and the Reagan Revolution. A kitschy period summed up as the "Me Decade," it was the time of Watergate and the end of Vietnam, of malaise and gas lines, but of nothing revolutionary, nothing with long-lasting significance. In the first full history of the period, Bruce Schulman, a rising young cultural and political historian, sweeps away misconception after misconception about the s. In a fast-paced, wide-ranging, and brilliant reexamination of the decade's politics, culture, and social and religious upheaval, he argues that the Seventies were one of the most important of the postwar twentieth-century decades. The Seventies witnessed a profound shift in the balance of power in American politics, economics, and culture, all driven by the vast growth of the Sunbelt. Country music, a southern silent majority, a boom in "enthusiastic" religion, and southern California New Age movements were just a few of the products of the new demographics. Others were even more profound: among them, public life as we knew it died a swift death.
By Bruce J. Roosevelt and the New Deal mapped out what was then the very recent past. The author and his audience had lived through and vividly remembered the events that these books retold. Leuchtenburg cut a broad swath through American history, leavening the standard account of politics and policy with tales of mah-jongg tournaments and labor unrest, Broadway musicals and crackpot pension schemes. The books were also decidedly personal. This book follows, haltingly, in those footsteps.
Paul Sabin, Crisis and Continuity in U. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill has faded rapidly as a focus of public attention, leaving in its wake an important question about energy politics in the United States: What role do crises play in bringing change to the American energy system? This essay considers the relationship between crisis and continuity by examining halting and incomplete efforts to sever the link between oil consumption and American economic growth between and Yet those opportunities, upon closer examination, appear fewer and smaller than they seemed at the time and are sometimes described today. To be sure, Congress passed a great deal of legislation and three successive presidents made energy policy a priority of their administrations.
The Rise and Fall of Modern American Conservatism tells the gripping story of perhaps the most significant political force of our time through the lives and careers of six leading figures at the heart of the movement. David Farber traces the history of modern conservatism from its revolt against New Deal liberalism, to its breathtaking resurgence under Ronald Reagan, to its spectacular defeat with the election of Barack Obama. Farber paints vivid portraits of Robert Taft, William F. Buckley Jr. He shows how these outspoken, charismatic, and frequently controversial conservative leaders were united by a shared insistence on the primacy of social order, national security, and economic liberty.

Она остановилась у края длинного стола кленового дерева, за которым они собирались для совещаний. К счастью, ножки стола были снабжены роликами. Упираясь ногами в толстый ковер, Сьюзан начала изо всех сил толкать стол в направлении стеклянной двери. Ролики хорошо крутились, и стол набирал скорость.
У тебя хорошее чутье, - парировал Стратмор, - но есть кое-что. Я ничего не нашел на Северную Дакоту, поэтому изменил направление поиска. В записи, которую я обнаружил, фигурирует другое имя - N DAKOTA. Сьюзан покачала головой. - Такие перестановки - стандартный прием.
Беккер покровительственно улыбнулся и перевел взгляд на дверь в ванную. - А у Росио. Капельки Росы.
Вы заплатили ему десять тысяч долларов? - Она повысила голос. - Это грязный трюк. - Трюк? - Теперь уже Стратмор не мог скрыть свое раздражение.
Какого черта я здесь делаю. Я должен был сейчас отдыхать в Смоуки-Маунтинс. Он вздохнул и задал единственный вопрос, который пришел ему в голову; - Как выглядит эта девушка.
