When first published in 1976, Godfrey Hodgson's America in Our Time won immediate recognition as a major interpretive study of the postwar era. In The Liberal Consensus Reconsidered, leading scholars--including Hodgson himself--confront his long-standing theory that a "liberal consensus" shaped the United States after World War II. These essays offer new insights into the era and diverging opinions on one of the most influential interpretations of mid-twentieth-century U.S. history.
