Kick Off Your Knickerbockers! The History of American Fun
Let's face it: Nothing's quite as fun as thumbing your nose at authority. Sure, Americans value justice and equality, but a new book outlines how our yearnings to let loose have fueled social revolutions. From the Patriots pranking the Redcoats to the slaves mocking their masters, we'll talk about a country built by outrageous risks, all in the pursuit of happiness.
- John Beckman, author of Â American Fun: Four Centuries of Joyous Revolt
