Overview

Since 1950, America has endured a tidal wave of social and technological change. The Cold War began. Americans bought the new miracle technology--the television set. American Bandstand aired nationally, playing rock-and-roll music. Civil rights riots, the Vietnam War, and Watergate jolted the nation. Ronald Reagan was elected president, and the World Trade Center was destroyed by terrorists.
See how and why these events have altered the American character forever.
In How We Have Changed, Rick Phalen interviews the witnesses of America's identity crisis. Through forty-five interviews with journalists and hippies, Vietnam veterans and historians, he examines the American experience--as it was, as it is, and why it has changed.
