Ed. by Rusty Monhollon and Peter C. Mancall.



246 pages



Perspectives in American social history series


For high school and undergraduate students, Monhollon (history, Hood College) brings together 10 articles that follow different groups within the Baby Boom generation from the 1950s to the present to show how baby boomers experienced and impacted the same historical events differently, especially their influence on economy and culture, and how Americans were affected by the Baby Boom generation. Scholars of history, sociology, anthropology, and journalism from the US consider the experiences of families, women, students, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, those in poverty, religious individuals, Organization Men, and suburbanites with the Cold War, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, the counterculture, Watergate, and other events. Key primary documents are included.
