Summary
  • Until the 1950s, political parties organized around economic interests and debated over the best allocation of scarce resources. But with the explosion of the nation's economy after World War II, a new set of needs began to emerge--a search for meaning and self-expression on one side, and a quest for stability and a return to traditional values on the other. Author Brink Lindsey offers a bold reinterpretation of the latter half of the twentieth century, in which the tumult of racial and gender politics, the rise of the counterculture, and the conservative revolution of the 1980s and 1990s are portrayed in an entirely new light. The political ideas that created the culture wars, Lindsey maintains, have grown obsolete. Struggling to replace today's stale conflicts is a new consensus that mixes the social freedom of the left with the economic freedom of the right into a potentially powerful ethos of libertarianismy.--From publisher description
