Summary

Now available in paperback is one of the most talked about books of the past year. Hailed by Senator Albert Gore as "the most stimulating and politically relevant book on American history that I have ever read", Generations has been heralded by public figures and reviewers as a brilliant, if somewhat unsettling, reassessment of where America is heading.
