Here's what you say about us...

John Patrick Diggins is the
author of The Rise and Fall of the American
Left and The Proud Decades:
1941-1960, in addition to biographies of
John Adams and Max Weber. He is a distinguished
professor of history at the City University of
New York Graduate Center. He lives in New York
City.

A superbly and provocatively written account that somehow successfully combines social, cultural, political, and diplomatic history (Kinsey, Bogart, McCarthy, Eisenhower, along with many others) to give us the overview we have needed of that mid-century shift that changed the course of American life-even before we entered the Sixties.
