Synopsis
HOMEWARD BOUND by Elaine Tyler May, Professor of American Studies and History at the University of Minnesota -Uncovering startling connections between the Cold War and family life, a noted historian challenges assumptions of the "happy days" of the 1950's. -"May sets a new standard for social history by linking intimate family life of the 1950's with the larger imperatives of the Cold War." --Barbara Ehrenreich, author of "Hearts of Men" -"Required reading for anyone who wants to understand how the upheavals in family life of recent years could have happened so quickly after the baby-boom era of togetherness and stability." --Arlene Skolnick, University of California, Berkeley -"A provocative, challenging, persuasive interpretation of the internal dynamics that shaped American family life in the postwar years." --William Chafe, Duke University
