Summary
"Middle-class family life in the 1950s brings to mind images of either smugly satisfied or miserably repressed nuclear families composed of breadwinning husbands, children, and housewives. Jessica Weiss delves beneath these mythic images and paints a far more complex picture that reveals strong continuities between the baby boomers and their parents. Combining interviews with American couples from the 1950s to the 1980s with a deft analysis of movies, television shows, magazines, and advice books from each decade, Weiss provides an unprecedented and intimate look at ordinary marriages in a time of sweeping cultural change.
