Summary:
This book analyzes changes in American intellectual life after the Second World War. It argues that sweeping cultural and intellectual trends undermined the legacy of social-democratic reform instituted by the New Deal. 'Land of Tomorrow' offers a genealogy of these changes within American liberalism by looking to writers and intellectuals such as Vladimir Nabokov, Ralph Ellison, Hannah Arendt, Lionel Trilling, Richard Wright, Saul Bellow, Patricia Highsmith, Alfred Hitchcock, J. D. Salinger, Ken Kesey, Walker Percy, Flannery O'Connor, and many others.
