Terkel presents a collective portrait of the century, woven from the voices of 70 Americans from the ages of 70 to 99. Farmers, bankers, leaders of social movements, artists, and politicians trace the ways their lives have changed over the past decades, and reflect on how traditional hopes and aspirations have been superseded by the ruthless demands of the modern corporation.
