Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time
Michael Downing (au)
Almost 100 years ago, lawmakers across America first debated, ridiculed, and then embraced the possibility of saving an hour of daylight. This is a portrait of public policy in the 20th century, a perennially boiling stew of unsubstantiated science, profiteering masked as piety, and mysteriously shifting time-zone boundaries. Downing sifts through a century of Congressional hearings, contemporary newspaper reporting, town meetings, and the annual tidal wave of letters to editors and weblog diatribes -- and he lets Daylight’s vociferous opponents and voracious proponents speak for themselves, a dizzyingly hilarious debate that seems destined to continue for as long as we ask one another, “What time is it?”
