Recensione: Norman Cantor writes as if he were present for each event and movement, both large and small, since 1900, so clear is his analysis of society, culture, and politics. In this massive book Cantor tackles seemingly everything--whether modernism, folk music, psychoanalysis, or the atomic bomb--placing each in its proper context while cleverly intertwining themes and drawing intriguing comparisons. A distinguished scholar of history, sociology, and comparative history, Cantor deftly incorporates a staggering amount of information and observations into a coherent package that will challenges readers' perceptions and ideas. Spiced with wit and wisdom, The American Century is at turns brilliant, controversial, and fascinating.
