..".so fresh, fertile and real that the only thing it resembles is itself...You just have to read it. It establishes its author as one our most commanding interpreters of recent American experience. It corrals all the generational energies coursing through the centrifuge of post-baby boomer '70s scholarship and churns them into the first compelling, coherent statement I've read of what happened in the '70s...Cowie's accomplishment is to convey what this epic cheat felt like from the inside."--Rick Perlstein, The Nation "If you want to understand how we got here--how the Democrats' New Deal coalition shattered in the 1970s, and why progressives are still picking the shrapnel out of their political hides--you must read Stayin' Alive.
