A sweeping social, political, economic, and cultural history of the ten years that author David Halberstam regards as seminal in determining what our nation is today.

He offers portraits of not only the titans of the age (Eisenhower Dulles, Oppenheimer, MacArthur, Hoover, and Nixon) but also of Harley Earl, who put fins on cars; Dick and Mac McDonald and Ray Kroc, who mass-produced the American hamburger; Kemmons Wilson, who placed his Holiday Inns along the nation’s roadsides; U-2 pilot Gary Francis Powers; Grace Metalious, who wrote Peyton Place; and "Goody" Pincus, who led the team that invented the Pill.
