Released: Sept. 4, 2001

"Engaging, if not always compelling, and best seen as a journalist's time capsule, not as an ultimate work. Enjoy it for Katz's ability to convey adventure, and for his prescient takes on the 1970s and '80s—like his bright view of the young Arkansas governor from a town called Hope."
A smooth collection of previously published articles on late-20th-century politics and places, by the observant author of, most recently, Just Do It: The Nike Spirit in the Corporate World (1994). Read full book review >
Released: June 1, 1994

Released: June 17, 1992

"Of interest but not quite a match for William Manchester's The Glory and the Dream (1974), the brilliant cultural history to which Katz's book, with its twist of family overlay, owes much. (Sixteen-page b&w photo insert—not seen.)"
An in-depth personal/sociological/cultural saga of one US family, 1945-90. Read full book review >
