Sinopsis de EMBATTLED DREAMS: CALIFORNIA IN WAR AND PEACE, 1940-1950 (AMERICANS AND THE CALIFORNIA DREAM) de Charles Dickens:

The sixth volume in one of the great ongoing works of American cultural history-Kevin Starr's monumen tal Americans and the California Dream-Embattled Dreams is a peerless work of cultural history following California in the years surrounding World War II. During the 1940s California ascended to a new, more powerful role in the nation. Starr describes the vast expansion of the war industry and Cali fornia's role as the arsenal of democracy (especially the significant part women played in the aviation industry). He examines the politics of the state: Earl Warren as the dominant political figure, the anti-Communist movement and red baiting, and the early career of Richard Nixon. He also looks a t culture, ranging from Hollywood to the counterculture, to film noir and detective stories. And he illuminates the harassment of Japanese immigrants and the shameful treatment of other minorities, especially Hispanics and blacks. In Embattled Dreams, Starr again provides a spellbinding account of the Golden State, narrating California's transformation from a regional power to a dominant economic, social, and cultural force. With a novelist's eye for the telling detail, and a historian's grasp of the sweep of grand events...[Starr's] got it all down...I read the book with absorbed admiration .-Herman Wouk, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Caine Mutiny and The Winds of War The scope of Starr's scholarship is breathtaking.-Atlantic Monthly A magnificent accomplishment.-Los Angeles Times Book Review Brilliant and epic social and cultural history.-Business Week Ebullient, nuanced, inte rdisciplinary history of the grandest kind.-San Francisco Chronicle
