    Om Fifties

    This vivid New York Times bestseller about 1950s America from a Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist is ';an engrossing sail across a pivotal decade' (Time). Joe McCarthy. Marilyn Monroe. The H-bomb. Ozzie and Harriet. Elvis. Civil rights. It's undeniable: The fifties were a defining decade for America, complete with sweeping cultural change and political upheaval. This decade is also the focus of David Halberstam's triumphant The Fifties, which stands as an enduring classic and was an instant New York Times bestseller upon its publication. More than a survey of the decade, it is a masterfully woven examination of far-reaching change, from the unexpected popularity of Holiday Inn to the marketing savvy behind McDonald's expansion. A meditation on the staggering influence of image and rhetoric, The Fifties is vintage Halberstam, who was hailed by the Denver Post as ';a lively, graceful writer who makes you . . . understand how much of our time was born in those years.'This ebook features an extended biography of David Halberstam.
