Altered States: America Since the Sixties (Reaktion Books - Contemporary Worlds) by Jeremy Black (Repost)
Publisher: Reaktion Books; 1 edition (November 1, 2006) | ISBN: 1861892888 | Pages: 240 | PDF | 663.15 KB
Black works from the startling premise that the United States is a continent pretending to be a country. He examines the cultural clashes—and the tense harmony—between the numerous regional cultures uneasily contained within the United States’ wide bounds. Suburban sprawl, the triumph of consumerism, the war over health care, immigration, and Christian evangelicalism all play a part in these pages, as Black unravels the tangled web of American life during the past forty-five years.
