February 9, 2010

By Dr. Gary R. Mormino

“An unblinking assessment of the triumphs and tragedies of Florida’s development over the past sixty years.” – Journal of Southern History “Chronicles the scams, plans, and amazing ingenuity that transformed a backwater southern state into an international marketplace.” – Journal of American History “If you have lived here any length of time, then you understand why Mormino calls the second half of the twentieth century ‘Florida’s Big Bang.’… Read this and it might convince you to take off that tie, rethink the way you live and look on with a little more respect and care for Florida, before the state of dreams becomes a nightmare.” – Tampa Tribune
