Framing the Sixties has just received an excellent review in the latest issue of the Journal of American History, the leading journal in the field, by Professor Alexander Bloom of Wheaton College. A leading authority on American politics and culture, Bloom is the author of Prodigal Sons: The New York Intellectuals and Their World, and Long Time Gone: Sixties America Then and Now. Bloom is also the co-author of “Takin’ it to the streets”: A Sixties Reader. In his generous review of Framing the Sixties, Bloom wrote that “His research has been prodigious; he combed every presidential library and countless periodicals, and he interviewed just about everyone,” adding that “One can almost read a history of the last thirty years embedded in von Bothmer’s analysis—covering everything from race relations to welfare reform to family values to the wars in Iraq. More than a tool of political rhetoric, the sixties seem to help shape the modern reality, far more than previous decades.” My sincere thanks to Professor Bloom for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review of my book.
