Clark's photographs shattered my perceptions of the American Golden Age. As an outsider (an Australian) this era appeared to be a homogenous time of prosperity, upward mobility and social cohesion. "Tulsa" is a superb counter to this and allows you to explore the complexity of the period and American culture. A fantastic book.
