No century chronicles as many milestones as the twentieth. Two world wars. The atomic bomb. Medical breakthroughs by the score. Men on the moon. The birth of the airplane, movies, television, pushbutton phones, and the Internet. The phenomenon of suburbia and the shopping mall. Just for starters.Lansing Lamont spent his childhood hearing stories from the front lines of the business world on his grandfather's knee, and his adult life reporting on the business of the nation at Time Magazine. Forty years after John F. Kennedy's casket was borne aloft before the world's dignitaries in a hushed Washington cathedral, riots and pillaging rocked the Capital in the wake of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, and Robert Kennedy died on the blood-soaked floor of a hotel pantry in Los Angeles, Lamont recounts the events that defined the Greatest Generation.
