Incredibly entertaining

by awall3218 on Jan 7, 2009

Hine does an excellent job of showing how Americans during the 1950s and early 1960s surrounded themselves with an idealized culture. The book is full of images from these golden years and Hine examines the way various objects and behaviors reflected larger cultural and national ideologies. A must-read for anyone interested in material culture or the Cold War society in America.
