Living-Room War is Arlen's valiant - and entertaining - attempt to figure out exactly what television does to us. This timeless collection of essays provides a poetic look at 1960s television culture, ranging from the Vietnam war to Captain Kangaroo, from the 1968 Democratic convention to televised sports.
