A More Perfect Union

Holistic Worldviews and the Transformation of American Culture after World War II

Linda Sargent Wood

  • This is the first book to recognize the connections between Rachel Carson, Buckminster Fuller, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Maslow, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and the Esalen Institute and capture the central role that their holistic visions had in the transformation of postwar society.
  • This book adds to our understanding of one way that Americans negotiated the Cold War years, and it illuminates the intellectual synergy among the most powerful social reforms of the twentieth century.
