Dead Serious and Lighthearted – The Memorable Words of Modern America – Volume II (1977-1993)

by Mack W. Borgen, (August 2018)
Schmitt & Brody Publishers, Santa Barbara, CA

In Volume II, the second of the three-volume Dead Serious and Lighthearted, the Memorable Words of Modern America from 1977 until 1993 are presented – with each entry identifying the speaker or writer; with each entry carefully placed into context and explained as to meaning. Once again and as with Volume I, the memorable words include the fascinating and frivolous, the tragic and momentous, the eloquent and bumbling.  

From Star Wars’ “may the force be with you” to Nicholson’s “you can’t handle the truth;” from the lightness of Happy Days to the edginess of Roseanne; from the efforts of Carter to the rise of Reagan; from the Go-Go 1980s and the Fall of Communism; from the emergence of modern conservatism to the impacts of globalism and technology.
