9780060747671: The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America's Politics and Culture

Until the 1960s, scarcity and the struggle to clothe, feed and employ the nation drove most of US political life. From slavery to the New Deal, political parties organized around economic interests and the often fervent debate over the best allocation of political and economic rewards. But with the explosion of the nation's economy in the years after World War II, a new set of needs began to emerge. Employing Abraham Maslow's famous hierarchy of needs, Brink Lindsey offers a complete re-interpretation of the latter half of the 20th Century.Suddenly, the tumult of racial and gender politics and the conservative revolution of the 1980s and 1990s can be seen in an entirely new light. Once the struggle for survival has been resolved, a new set of divisive issues emerge. In a sweeping tour of American history since World War 2, Lindsey establishes that both left and right have contributed important ideas to our political culture. Indeed, by showing that we have conquered poverty, Lindsey is able to describe the politics of abundance as conflict between those who want to defend the fruits of prosperity - the freedoms that the US enjoys because of it's dynamic economy, including gender equality and alternative lifestyles - and those who want to defend the institutions that created abundance - the family, traditional values and religious certitude.

Descrizione libro Collins Publishers. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 400 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 5.3in. x 1.1in.Until the 1950s, the struggle to feed, clothe, and employ the nation drove most of American political life. From slavery to the New Deal, political parties organized around economic interests and engaged in fervent debate over the best allocation of agonizingly scarce resources. But with the explosion of the nations economy in the years after World War II, a new set of needs began to emergea search for meaning and self-expression on one side, and a quest for stability and a return to traditional values on the other. In The Age of Abundance, Brink Lindsey offers a bold reinterpretation of the latter half of the twentieth century. In this sweeping history of postwar America, the tumult of racial and gender politics, the rise of the counterculture, and the conservative revolution of the 1980s and 1990s are portrayed in an entirely new light. Readers will learn how and why the contemporary ideologies of left and right emerged in response to the novel challenges of mass prosperity. The political ideas that created the culture wars, however, have now grown obsolete. As the Washington Post aptly summarized Lindseys take on the contradictions of American politics, Republicans want to go home to the United States of the 1950s while Democrats want to work there. Struggling to replace todays stale conflicts is a new consensus that mixes the social freedom of the left with the economic freedom of the right into a potentially powerful ethos of libertarianism. The Age of Abundance reveals the secret formula of this remarkable alchemy. The book is a breathtaking reevaluation of our recent pastand will change the way we think about the future.
