Growing up during the Second World War, H. Bruce Franklin believed what he was told: that America's victory would lead to a new era of world peace. Like most Americans, he was soon led to believe in a world-wide Communist conspiracy that menaced the United States, forcing the nation into a disastrous war in Korea. But once he joined the U.S.

In his book Contemplating Christ, Vincent Pizzuto offers an exploration of the interior life for modern contemplatives that is as beautiful as it is compelling.

Historian Berrett debuts with a superb cultural history of the period between 1966 and 1974, when “football, politics and culture entwined themselves in ever more complex ways.” Berrett concisely looks at how NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle used his newly acquired production company, NFL Films, to transform the violent image of the sport by producing films and TV programming that extolled football’s “meaning, glory, excitement, and passion.” The book’s second half explores how politicians tried to capitalize on pro football’s cultural relevance, particularly Richard Nixon’s use of the sport—and his endorsement of conservative coaches such as Vince Lombardi—as part of a “public strategy of rallying mainstream America against the dissent, abnormality, and un-American behavior” that could be linked to groups he sought to marginalize. An epilogue looks at how the battle over football’s meaning continued in the 1980s; Berrett observes that Ronald Reagan’s repeated use of “the Gipper” was used to embody the entire Reagan ethos of America as “still the shining city on a hill.” This thought-provoking sports history nicely looks at the significance professional football has had on American politics and culture.

Transformer, Lou Reed's most enduringly popular album, is described with varying labels: it's often called a glam rock album, a proto-punk album, a commercial breakthrough for Lou Reed, and an album about being gay. And yet, it doesn't neatly fit into any of these descriptors.
