One star for the research...Book is sorely in need of a proofreader. Rosen annoys the reader by repeating himself over and over, covering the same events while not offering much insight. Numerous factual errors (“Send in the Clowns” and “Theme from ‘Love Story’” were not 1950s tunes) abound.

... City home during the time covered in David Rosen's wonderful book I was aware of the general ideas MrApril 24, 2016
Having grown up in a liberal New York City home during the time covered in David Rosen's wonderful book I was aware of the general ideas Mr. Rosen presents. What I was missing were all the specific examples and stories that Mr. Rosen offers. They are both enlightening and entertaining. I encourage anyone who is interested in gaining a more in depth understanding of how New York City lead the nation in the 1950s when it came to concepts of sin, sexuality and subversion to read this book.
