Summary
Rodgers (history, Princeton U.) presents a wide-ranging intellectual history of changes in political, economic, and social thought in the United States (although the intellectuals discussed are by no means only Americans) in the final quarter of the 20th century. His treatment offers no grand, unitary narrative of intellectual change, but instead seeks to demonstrate how ideas were contested and bled across disciplinary and social boundaries in ways that fundamentally reshaped the ideological landscape of the country. He presents his argument in chapters that thematically focus on the revival of market ideology in response to the economic crisis of the 1970s, reconceptualizations of the nature of power, debates over race and social memory, conceptualizations of womanhood, multiculturalism and societal identity, and the nature of history. If there is any one overarching theme, it is that this period was a time when concepts of society were fragmented in a shifting stock of categories and within a "swirl of choice."
