Description
 
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?”
