Again and again historians have sought to explain the nation's profound political realignment from the 1960s to the 2000s, four decades that witnessed the fracturing of liberalism and the rise of the conservative right. Robert O. Self's latest book, All in the Family: The Realignment of American Democracy Since the 1960s, is the first synthetic treatment to recognize that the many separate threads of that realignmentfrom civil rights to women’s rights, from the antiwar movement to the “silent majority,” from the abortion wars to gay marriage, from health care to welfare reformall ran through the politicized modern American family.
