      This is a state by state compilation of politics, history, culture, geography, odd ball facts and astute observations Gunther captured the USA in a point in time Some of his observations are as true now as they were then One can get a sense for what is enduring and what is gone with the wind It is a book that you can dabble in or read all the way through.

      What I liked best about this book is that it offers a snapshot of late 1940s America it s attitudes and politics One of my favorite books by this author is Death Be Not Proud.

      Gunther s approach to understanding post war America is to talk to as many politicians and leaders in every state To understand labor and industry in a particular state, he spoke with the union leaders and industrial leaders of that state He is a journalist by trade, which makes for the fact heaviness of his profiles of the states, but he is only seeing the states from a white male perspective, which is unsatisfying to the modern reader or at least to me The facts he collects can be fascinating, [...]

      fascinating read, definitely a biased point of view, from a reporter in the 40 s I am having a great time with this book so far The facts and statistics alone definitely give some perspective on how life in the U.S was when my father was born.

      The North Dakota chapter is a hoot ND has a wacky and radical political history, and he gets into the nuts and bolts of it He could have discussed the unique beauty of ND, but instead chose to give that discussion to the SD.
