No Requiem for the Space Age: The Apollo Moon Landings and American Culture review

No Requiem for the Space Age: The Apollo Moon Landings and American CultureNo Requiem for the Space Age: The Apollo Moon Landings and American Culture by Matthew D. Tribbe
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I did learn something from this book – the Apollo missions (really, the whole space race) were pretty controversial, and opposition to them came from both the left and right. In fact, a year after Apollo 11 less than half of the people in a poll could name Neil Armstrong as the man who first walked on the moon. (the number is higher now)

Other than that, though, the book was just kind of long and meandering and depressing. I’m not sure what I was expecting, I guess, but I was disappointed.
