Counter
America’s culture war – which pits traditionalists, unrelenting defenders of the social orthodoxy, against modernists, agitators for social change – has simmered and seethed since the birth of the nation. But in the turbulent decade of the 1960s, the culture war erupted in the political arena, where it thunders on today. War Without End examines how the evolution of cultural issues as political tools has rocked the balance of political power in America, from the period of the fractious 1968 presidential campaign to the contest for the White House and for the Congress in 2000. Through an expansive coverage of events – from Vietnam, Nixon, discrimination, abortion, economic imbalance, and morality in political behavior – Washington journalist Robert Shogan provides an objective and informed look at how Americans feel about themselves and their country in the first decade of the new millennium while the culture war rages on.
