Remarkable for its frankness and placing this legendary dynasty in the social, historical context-- Vietnam, political protests, and racial strife. UCLA teams were a part of the times and apart from them at the same time. It is first and foremost about basketball, but it is also about modern American history and about the Coach, John Wooden, who lived through it all. The UCLA Dynasty is an entertaining you-are-there civic lesson and personal accounts of victory and loss. I've given it to my teen-age grandchildren to learn about life.
