    DescriptionIt was a time much like the present, says New York-based history and current affairs writer Perlstein: the end of the 1950s with the US affluent, confident, and convinced that politics was dead. Then liberal Kennedy was elected, and southern and midwest conservatives conspired to challenge the center-left consensus, gathering around the white-hat cowboy Goldwater. He explains that when Goldwater was trounced by Johnson in 1964, pundits wrote the movement off as dead, but in fact the consensus was shattered, and the country has moved steadily into separate and suspicious camps since then.
