This is Who We Were: 1980s

“Following in the pattern of previous volumes in this series, this inviting reference combines census and other government data with personal narrative, advertisements, clippings, and so forth to provide a portrait of a decade. The first section is made up of 28 profiles (such as “1983: Anna
Delgado, Anti-Nuclear Weapons Movement Protestor” and “1989: Irby Hipp, Teenage Video-Game Player from West Virginia”); other sections cover snapshots of the time, economic figures, and reprints of news articles and advertisements. The latter half of the book is made up of a variety of census tables. The series is a useful source for student assignments and general browsing. Recommended for school and public libraries.”
