This is Who We Were: 1950s

“An offspring in the 13-volume “Working Americans” series, which assessed Americans by class, occupation, and social cause, this title examines a single decade. Profiles of 34 families across the socioeconomic spectrum take up half the book, with descriptions of their lives at home and work and in their community. Shorter middle sections provide context and include a listing of historic milestones, an economic overview, and a collection of representative media. A substantial demographic analysis, drawing on U.S. census data, concludes the work. VERDICT An engaging snapshot for nostalgia buffs and researchers alike.”
