Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0756778840, Hardcover)

This fully illustrated volume in the Time-Life series, Our American Century, offers you the opportunity to look back at all the people who made the 1950s what they were. Recall Sputnik, Korea, the baby boom, the Golden Age of TV, & other events, & see how they defined who we are today. In addition to combing through the archives of Time, Life, & Sports Illustrated magazines, the editors visited antique shops, spoke to collectors, contacted manufacturers & government agencies, & toured museums as big as the Smithsonian Institution & as small as Ohio s Wyandot Popcorn Museum. The resulting book, containing hundreds of pictures & countless quotations from the period, evokes the look & feel, the dreams & fears, the hopes & joys of the 50s.
