Reviews

Dazed and Confused is an imaginative exploration of the 1970s that effectively challenges popular perceptions that little of historical importance happened during the much-maligned decade. In this thought-provoking book, historian Blaine Browne highlights how national politics, popular culture, economic trends, human rights struggles, and foreign policy both reflected national anxieties and intensified the uncertainty that characterized the crucial decade between the "radical" 60s and "conservative" 80s. The result is a work that is accessible to a general audience yet also useful for all students of Twentieth Century America.
