From the pages of Look, the magazine that defined the fifties, comes a photographic portrayal of the dynamic era that sparked a transformation in America’s political and cultural identity. From the Red Scare incited by Joseph McCarthy to the election of John F. Kennedy as president in 1960, the 1950s heralded some of the most striking and clashing aspects of twentieth-century America. The evocative images in this volume chart a contradictory decade and James Conaway’s entertaining and highly readable year-by-year survey will resonate across generations.
