The Strange Death of American Liberalism (Paperback)

Not in the store—Ships in 1-5 Days


This compelling book focuses on the sea change in American politics from the 1960s to the present--from a time when liberals created bold government programs to solve important social problems, to contemporary distrust of government and rejection of liberal ideals. H. W. Brands delineates the intimate connection between the rise of postwar liberalism and the emergence of the Cold War. When the Cold War ended and Americans ceased to feel dependent on their government for protection, the fate of liberalism was sealed.
