What People are Saying About This

Marilyn Young

A brilliant meditation on the past half-century of the American national story.... Its account of the disintegration of a confident post-World War II national identity is a stunning achievement.

John Dower

"An extraordinarily original work that places postwar American history in an entirely new perspective. Anyone who wishes to introduce students to post-1945 American culture should assign this wonderful book."

Studs Terkel

America Victorious has been our country's postulate since its birth. Tom Engelhardt, with a burning clarity, recounts the end of this fantasy, from the split atom to Vietnam.... As powerful as a Joe Louis jab to the solar plexus.

Elaine Tyler May

"A perfect book to use in twentieth-century history courses."

Todd Gitlin

"Full of brilliancies, this tour de force is one of those rare books that can change the way we see."
