Restless Giant: The United States from Watergate to Bush vs. Gore

Restless Giant: The United States from Watergate to Bush vs. Gore - James T. Patterson The narrative was often incomplete and misleading. Cultural and political biases abound. Compared to most other books in the Oxford History of the U.S. the craft was weak. It continued Patterson's practice from Great Expectations 1945-1973 of inelegantly presenting a jumble of cultural, political, demographical, legal and economic data. Some of my problems with the book likely stem from it relating recent and as yet unsettled history.
