Outstanding investigative reporting. I lived through these times, though on the other coast. This is a long book - 500 pages - but I could not put it down. It is also a difficult topic - the origin of the ongoing culture wars. Yet the author manages to approach it in a very even-handed way, showing the warts on all sides without dehumanizing anyone. The book benefits from the release of previously classified FBI documents that reveal hitherto hidden - but critical - parts of the story. Reading this will not only sweep away some misconceptions about the period, but also help understand present day USA.
