Description

The USA has been going through a new kind of revolution, which though it did not literally overthrow the government, transformed racial, gender, and other social relationships, and bequeathed the deep divisions now felt in the nation's politics and culture.

Reviews

"Robert V. Daniels understands that cultural revolutions have transformed the modern world at least as much as have violent conquests of state power. The Fourth Revolution is a challenging, original synthesis of the history of our own time." -- Michael Kazin, co-author of America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960s

"The Fourth Revolution is a book with a powerful and important argument. Robert V. Daniels helps to contextualize the 1960s within the narrative of modern world history. This is a very valuable contribution." -- Jeremi Suri, author of Power and Protest: Global Revolution and the Rise of Détente
