About the Author
Praise For Stayin' Alive: The 1970s and the Last Days of the Working Class…
In near epic proportions, Cowie covers . . . the demise of the mythic American working class. A must read.
Might be the most groundbreaking and original national history of a working class since
E. P. Thompson’s Making of the English Working Class.
[C]aptures the contradictory nature of 1970s politics better than almost any other [book] ever written about the period.
[A] fun read with cultural insight that makes connections I hadn’t, from Saturday Night Fever to Dog Day Afternoon, Bruce Springsteen to Devo.
