The Crucial Decade: America, 1945-1955

By Eric F. Goldman

Knopf, 1956, 298 pp.

A review and commentary on a singularly confused and irascible ten years of American history which has now, rather surprisingly, become history. The sense of sudden remoteness is not quite as sharp as in Frederick Lewis Allen's "Only Yesterday," but it is there.
