Product Details

Praise

“Provocative . . . original. . . . Rich in detail and perception.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Substantial, illuminating, and sophisticated. . . . A creative, provocative and often compelling account. . . . Sweeping and fascinating. . . . A genuine contribution to postwar American history.” —Chicago Tribune

“Ingenious. . . . Exceptional. . . . Cohen thinks big. . . . Her history is impeccable; her almost superhuman investigations into obscure sources and archives bring many rewards.” —The New Republic

“A sobering book—and an essential one. . . . Broadly ambitious. . . . The first historical account to examine closely the social world of postwar consumerism and the politics that were so tightly enmeshed with it.” —The American Prospect
