Description - The Strange Death of American Liberalism by H. W. Brands
This work focuses on the sea change in American politics from the 1960s to the 21st century, from a time when liberals created bold government programmes to solve important social problems, to contemporary distrust of government and rejection of liberal ideals. H.W. Brands delineates the intimate connection between the rise of postwar liberalism and the emergence of the Cold War. When the Cold War ended and Americans ceased to feel dependent on their government for protection, the fate of liberalism was sealed.
