“I look back at 1959 as a turning point, the gestation of change. One American visionary, Adlai Stevenson, called it The Revolution of Rising Expectations. An intellectual, Stevenson (who ran twice unsuccessfully against Eisenhower, as Democratic presidential candidate) forsaw a world eager to cast off ideologies that did not grow food, cure disease, create economic security. Around the globe, war weariness was about to give way to hope.”
