Haven't posted for awhile, as the reviews and news on the book have slowed down to a bit of a trickle. Today, though, in a fabulous and mournful Labor Day op-ed called "Last Labor Day?," E.J. Dionne at the Washington Post gave the book a wonderful shout out. I also had another chat with the ever-sharp and well-informed Ian Masters at Pacifica's KPFK, which you can listen to here (I'm on part three of the show for about 20 minutes). Most of the popular press reviews on the book are long out, but the scholarly reviews, moving at the glacial speed of the academy, have yet to appear. That is, except for the predictably testy review from Judith Stein in the Journal of American History last spring. I've declined many chances to review her Pivotal Decade, since I didn't want to get into a smack down on an old debate over structure and culture. Suffice to say, that I believe it to be cultural questions that prevented a more coherent response to the structural crisis of the 1970s. For me the question is never: will business struggle to get the upper hand? It's: what prevents or fosters a more coherent response?
