After all, Reaganomics set in motion one of the largest wealth redistributions in American history, away from the poor and toward the rich.
Biographers use historians more than historians use biographers, although there can be two-way traffic - e.g., the ever-growing production of biographies of women is helping to change the general picture of the past presented by historians.

Westminster Abbey, the Tower, a steeple, one church, and then another, presented themselves to our view; and we could now plainly distinguish the high round chimneys on the tops of the houses, which yet seemed to us to form an innumerable number of smaller spires, or steeples.

The counterculture has nothing to do with Dolce & Gabbana having a 'Hippy Summer' or something.
