Decade of nightmares : the end of the sixties and the making of eighties America

by Phillip Jenkins, 344 p.

This is a fascinating theory that I think about all the time.  The whole idea that the older siblings of the 60's led to the younger siblings of the 70's and 80's rejecting those ideals and embracing a sort of backwards conservatism.  Absolutely fascinating.  But the book was a little dry.  Good thing I have an active imagination and knew a bit about the subject.
