ARCHIE & EDITH, MIKE & GLORIA tells the complete story of the most widely viewed and perhaps the most controversial sitcom series in the history of television-the show that dared to take on race, religion, politics, and sex and make us laugh at the same time. Packed with photos, the book captures the Bunker mentality and traces the Bunker legacy through thirteen years on prime time.
