Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0756778832, Hardcover)

This fully illustrated volume in the Time-Life series, Our American Century, is a scrapbook of that long-ago 50s teen scene that still seems so close today. It was a time, above all, when teens gave the world a new music -- the wild beat called rock & roll. The editors talked to veteran hot rodders, guitar & jukebox enthusiasts, collectors of vintage 45s, & a host of 50s high schoolers still happy to share memories of those magic years. They went everywhere from the Library of Congress to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum. The resulting book, containing more than 300 pictures & countless quotations, brings back the hopes, fears, & dreams of a one-of-a-kind generation, a generation that could only have exited in the fabulous, nifty 50s.
