Abstract:

It's fashionable to mock Boomers as self-involved and materialistic, but what really is their true legacy? To understand how the Boomers have changed America, think back to the 1950s, but without the nostalgia: women were kept at home, minorities were denied their dignity, homosexuality was a crime, and anyone who marched to a different drummer was labeled un-American. Today we live in a far more open, inclusive, tolerant, and equal America. That's because Baby Boomers fought a great cultural war to free America from its prejudices, inequalities, and fears. This book tells the story of their accomplishments.--From publisher description.
