The book explores the history of America “from the atomic age to the virtual age.” The University of Chicago has the download available for free throughout the month of February. Here is more about the book from its description:
It was the age of atomic testing, duck-and-cover, sprawling suburbs, TV, rock-and-roll, rockets to the moon, and riots in the cities. It was the fevered ascendance of the new, pop, modern, and utopian. Levittown to Lucy to Dylan. It was a time of exhilaration and anxiety, of shock and malaise, of the yearning for community and the quest for identity.
