Description
Life would never be the same again! When the war ended and prosperity began, a cultural revolution broke out: rock'n roll was here to stay and restless youth exploded with newfound energy. From impudent teddy boys, screaming teenyboppers, and swooning bobby-soxers to a hip-swiveling Elvis, sexy Marilyn, brooding James Dean, and the swinging Buddy Holly, the 1950s gave birth to a fresh style in the home, the streets, and the entertainment world, too. Celebrate this unparalleled decade through evocative, extraordinary photographs (many formerly unseen) and witty, incisive text written by an acclaimed novelist and journalist. Coming alive on the pages are the most popular TV shows of the period; dancers letting the good times roll; a child's-eye view of the rapidly modernizing society; the fads and fashions, beatniks and bohemians, celebrities and cinematic successes, and gizmos, gadgets, signs, and ads that defined the age. You'll understand why these were the years when a whole lot of shakin' was going on!
