I should probably subtitle this subject-heading "shameless self-promotion."
Abbie Hoffman once said (with a smile) "there couldn't have been the sixties if we hadn't had the fifties." For a neat overview of why the sixties sexual revolution had to happen, read my "Dark Ages: Life in the USA, 1945-1960" (South End Press).
Chapters ten and eleven deal with family life and growing up in the postwar era. There is a neat little section on the "horny fifties," as well as sections on "rocks and greasers," "anti-feminism," and the first stirrings of the feminist movement." I cover dating and making out, DA haircuts, and quote publications aimed at teenage girls.
