Item Description: Random House Inc, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 229 x 163 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Originally a New Deal liberal and aggressive anticommunist, Senator Eugene McCarthy famously lost faith with the Democratic party over Vietnam. His stunning challenge to Lyndon Johnson in the 1968 New Hampshire primary inspired young liberals and was one of the greatest electoral upsets in American history. But the 1968 election ultimately brought Richard Nixon and the Republican Party to power, irrevocably shifting the country#8217;s political landscape to the right for decades to come. Dominic Sandbrook traces one of the most remarkable and significant lives in postwar politics, a career marked by both courage and arrogance. Sandbrook draws on extensive new research #8211; including interviews with McCarthy himself #8211; to show convincingly how Eugene McCarthy#8217;s political experience embodies the larger decline of American liberalism after World War II. These were tumultuous times in American politics, and Sandbrook vividly captures the drama and historical significance through his intimate portrait of a singularly interesting man at the heart of it all.

Item Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Dominic Sandbrook s magnificent account of the late 1970s in Britain - the book behind the major BB2 series The Seventies . The late 1970s were Britain s years of strife and the good life. They saw inflation, riots, the peak of trade union power - and also the birth of home computers, the rise of the ready meal and the triumph of a Grantham grocer s daughter who would change everything. Dominic Sandbrook recreates this extraordinary period in all its chaos and contradiction, revealing it as a turning point in our recent history, where, in everything from families and schools to punk and Doctor Who, the future of the nation was being decided. Reviews: Magnificent .if you lived through the late Seventies - or, for that matter, even if you didn t - don t miss this book . ( Mail on Sunday ). Sandbrook has created a specific style of narrative history, blending high politics, social change and popular culture .always readable and assured .[A] splendid book . (Stephen Robinson, Sunday Times ). [Sandbrook] has a remarkable ability to turn a sow s ear into a sulk purse. His subject is depressing, but the book itself is a joy.Sandbrook is, without doubt, superb. Seasons in the Sun is a familiar story, yet seldom has it been told with such verve . (Gerard DeGroot, Seven ). A brilliant historian.I had never fully appreciated what a truly horrible period it was until reading Sandbrook . (A. N. Wilson, Spectator ). Nuanced.Sandbrook has rummaged deep into the cultural life of the era to remind us how rich it was, from Bowie to Dennis Potter, Martin Amis to William Golding . (Damian Whitworth, The Times ). Sharply and fluently written .entertaining.By making you quite nostalgic for the present, Sandbrook has done a public service . ( Evening Standard ). About the author: Born in Shropshire ten days before the October 1974 election, Dominic Sandbrook was educated at Oxford, St Andrews and Cambridge. He is the author of three hugely acclaimed books on post-war Britain: Never Had It So Good , White Heat and State of Emergency , and two books on modern American history, Eugene McCarthy and Mad as Hell . A prolific reviewer and columnist, he writes regularly for the Sunday Times , Daily Mail , New Statesman and BBC History. Bookseller Inventory # APG9780141032160
