From the congressional debate over the "fall of China" to the drama of the Army-McCarthy hearings to the kitchen faceoff between Richard Nixon and Nikita Khrushchev, the political history of the early Cold War was long dominated by studies of presidential administrations, anti communism, and foreign policy. In Liberty and Justice for All? a group of distinguished historians representing a variety of disciplinary perspectives-social history, cultural history, intellectual history, labour history, urban history, women's history, African American studies, and media studies-expand on the political history of the early Cold War by rethinking the relationship between politics and culture. How, for example, did folk music help to keep movement culture alive throughout the 1950s? How did the new medium of television change fundamental assumptions about politics and the electorate? How did American experiences with religion in the 1950s strengthen the separation of church and state? How did race, class, and gender influence the relationship between citizens and the state? These are just some of the questions addressed in this wide-ranging set of essays. In addition to volume editor Kathleen G. Donohue, contributors include Howard Brick, Kari Frederickson, Andrea Friedman, David Greenberg, Grace Elizabeth Hale, Jennifer Klein, Laura McEnaney, Kevin M. Schultz, Jason Scott Smith, Landon R. Y. Storrs, and Jessica Weiss.

An excellent, well-written, and very fresh look at the long 1950s from a variety of different and interesting perspectives. Taken as a whole, the essays raise a host of questions about our standard narrative of the postwar era, the Cold War era and its dour man in the gray flannel suit domesticity story. And many of them provide some intriguing answers to questions that have scarcely even been raised by other historians.--James B. Gilbert, coeditor of Rethinking Cold War Culture This strong collection of essays . . . represents the benefits of cross-fertilization among social, cultural, and political historians of postwar America. A well-edited, smartly chosen collection of essays, Liberty and Justice for All? deserves to be widely read and taught.--The Journal of American History Illuminating essays . . . thought-provoking . . . kaleidoscopic.--Journal of American Studies
