Book News Annotation:

A baby boomer himself, Brooks (historical foundations, Villanova U., Pennsylvania) traces the "great invasion" of the generation born after World War II through to the tumultuous 1960s. Drawing on interviews as well as published sources, he examines how they and popular culture and mass media influenced each other in the contexts of social transitions and East-West tensions. The book includes photos and a note on sources. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The unexpected surge in the birthrate between 1946 and 1964 transformed American society. A nation that had projected a population peaking at 150 million, and feared a renewal of the Great Depression in the wake of World War II, found itself dealing with a booming economy and 70 million children straining the capacity of everything from schools to new suburban housing. In Boomers, Victor Brooks chronicles the peaceful children's invasion of America that occurred from Dr. Spock to Woodstock. He identifies the challenge of parenthood in an era of large families and overcrowded homes, and explores the home life, leisure activities, and school environment of children who grew up during the cold war years. A major theme of Boomers is the influence on children of a newly energized American popular culture, including television, film, popular music, and toys.
