Politics, manners, humor, sexuality, wealth, even our definitions of success are periodically renegotiated based on the new values society choosesto use as a lens to judge what is acceptable.Are these new values randomly chosen or is there a pattern Pendulum chronicles the stuttering history of western society; that endless back-and-forth swing between one excess and another, always reminded of what we left behind.There is a pattern and it is 40 years: 2003 was a fulcrum year, as was 1963, its opposite. Pendulum explains where we have been as a society, how we got here, and where we are headed. If you would benefit from a peek into the future,you would do well to read this book.
