Free E-Book: Outside the Gates of Eden: The Dream of America from Hiroshima to Now

The American cultural landscape in the second half of the twentieth century is the focus of our free e-book for February, Outside the Gates of Eden: The Dream of America from Hiroshima to Now by Peter Bacon Hales. It was the age of atomic testing, duck-and-cover, sprawling suburbs, TV, rock-and-roll, rockets to the moon, and riots in the cities. It was the fevered ascendance of the new, pop, modern, and utopian. Levittown to Lucy to Dylan. It was a time of exhilaration and anxiety, of shock and malaise, of the yearning for community and the quest for identity.
Outside the Gates of Eden is an ambitious and intoxicating history of America from the atomic age to the virtual age, illustrated with more than 100 photographs.
