I was looking for a history of the 80s something along the lines of Halberstam s The Fifties a big reuest I know After some research I decided on Morning in America not exactly what I was looking for but the best recommended I was happy that this was not a walk down 80s kitschy memory lane Yes there were many references of pop culture but I did get a bit of the history I was looking forThe major issue I had with the book is the author s obvious adoration for Reagan this is not an unbiased assessment Reagan is elevated to near political god status a man who could do nearly no wrong and any wrong was really the fault of others or circumstance This position taken by Troy makes Morning in America a less than reliable historical work because it lacks impartiality I don t doubt many of the facts presented but the interpretation is suspectAs a general overview of the 80s this isn t bad but as a fulfilling history this book misses the mark
