The Politics of Economic Growth in Postwar America

Robert M. Collins

Robert Collins' book explores the growth of America in terms of material prosperity. Collins interweaves economic history and cultural analysis onto his examination of postwar growth politics. The book contrasts the reasons for expansion and the way it has occurred in the past fifty years with the negative effects it has produced and the reactions against it. He also looks at the attitudes and behaviors that have developed as Americans have become a people of more.
