From "I Like Ike" to razor-wire and National Guard troops ringing the U.S. Capitol, from Carl Perkins's "Blue Suede Shoes" to Brotha Lynch Hung's "Meat Cleaver," the United States has changed. Seven decades of material abundance and unprecedented technological advances have entwined with pronounced social and cultural fragmentation. What - and who - can explain this peculiar transformation of the land of the free and home of the brave? In From Elvis to Trump, Eyewitness to the Unraveling: Co-Starring Richard Nixon, Andy Warhol, Bill Clinton, the Supremes, and Barack Obama, Eric Rozenman takes readers on an often wry, but always substantive, journey through the past 65 years of American culture. The author provides first-hand accounts of key players and events. Presidents, prime ministers, dictators, rock stars, movie stars, survivors, protesters, and a Miss America all have their say. An FBI investigation of the author makes clear that those in charge didn't know the half of it. Bob Hope and Shirley Temple Black, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel are among those who paint the era's impressionistic portrait, by turns entertaining and tragic. Through a fast-moving series of vignettes, From Elvis to Trump highlights a nation and a time that concludes - brakes screeching before a STOP sign that was there all along - of unparalleled change and challenge.
