Annotation As the 1950s were the first decade immortalized by television, the author uses the images that appeared on home screens to support his perception that events made the decade far more rebellious than the benign period often portrayed. Challenging the myth of the "innocent" generation, Halberstam examines political, economic, and social highlights of the era, citing familiar experiences and famous people from Marilyn Monroe to Joseph McCarthy. Bestseller.
