Through the prism of three working-class families, Samuel Freedman brilliantly illuminates the political history of twentieth-century America. His in-depth portraits begin with the immigrant generation that rose from poverty to the middle class and, by swelling the ranks of the Democratic Party, laid the foundation for FDR's New Deal. He shows how their children, loyal to the Democrats, ushered in the activist politics of the 1960s, and he explains the forces-economic, social, religious, and intellectual-that attracted the next generation to the new conservatism of today. SC, 464 pages.
