What is this book about?

Interspersing commentary from the author and the Peanuts strips of Charles Schulz, this book looks at changes in American attitudes, ideas, inspirations, and social phenomena over the past years. Lucy on psychiatry; Charlie on love; Snoopy on leisure-time activities; politics, school, and education; home, sports, religion, culture and business—the whole of American life is viewed realistically and sometimes idealistically through the eyes of the Peanuts kids.
