America in Our Time: From World War II to Nixon
America in Our Time: From World War II to Nixon
By Godfrey Hodgson
Doubleday, 1976, 564 pp.

An urbane and intelligent discussion, by a distinguished British journalist, of the shifting social and ideological foundations of American politics since 1945. The American people, says the author, must for the first time accept "the limits of human possibility," erecting a new consensus "on the ruins of illusion."
