Description: Trow takes us from 1950 to 1997 by reading newspapers, going to the movies, and watching television, and, in the end, is able to show us just how we got to where we are now. Trow takes the year 1950 as the year the Old World gave way to the New: Winston Churchill had just been named The Man of the Half Century by Time magazine; George Bernard Shaw was still alive, and so was William Randolph Hearst. Before the half-decade was out, the world represented by these powerful old men had disappeared. Trow takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride throught The New York Times of February 1950, from the thundering front pages where the terror of the "H-bomb" is making its first appearance, back to the early, sketchy, amateur television listings to a proto-People magazine profile. The result is nothing less than a eulogy for a lost time and a criticism of modern American culture.
