64 BOORSTIN, DANIEL J. & RUTH F. BOORSTIN (SELECTED AND EDITED BY). Hidden History: Exploring Our Secret Past.
Vintage Books, New York: 1989. Third Printing. 
In this provocative collection, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Daniel J. Boorstin explores the essential "hidden history" of the American experience that is overlooked by most historians. In twenty-four essays -- divided into five sections, "The Quest for History," "A By-Product Nation," "The Rhetoric of Democracy," "Unsung Experiments," and "The Momentum of Technology" --Daniel J. Boorstin examines significant rhythms, patterns, and institutions of everyday American life: from his intimate portraits of such legendary figures as Paul Revere, Abigail Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, to more expansive discussions of historical phenomena as the Theory of Distance and the Law of Survival of the Unread. Includes an Index. "Highly representative of his awesome scope . . . eminently readable and provocative." -- Washington Post Book World
