    Summary: All in the Family tells the story of how the politics of the modern American family changed from 1960 to present day. As many people know, the 1960s was one of the most revolutionary decades for equal rights in the United States. With the uprising of women’s and gay rights, family ideals were put into question. The man was no longer the sole breadwinner of the household, and many people and politicians had a problem with that. Every battle for equality in the U.S and its effects on the American family since the 1960s are accurately retold with unbiased detail.

    Evaluation: I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of American politics. This has been one of the most factual and informative books I have read about U.S history and managed to keep my interest throughout its entirety. However it is a very long read and I would not recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick read. All in the Family is an excellent choice for anyone doing a book report for their history class.

    Rating: 4 stars
