Homeward Bound : American Families in the Cold War Era, Paperback / softback Book

Homeward Bound : American Families in the Cold War Era Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


When Homeward Bound first appeared in 1988, it altered the way we understood Cold War America.

The post-World War II era was thought of as a time when Americans turned away from politics to enjoy the fruits of peace and prosperity, while their leaders remained preoccupied with the dangers of the Atomic Age.

Elaine Tyler May demonstrated that the Cold War infused life on every level from the boardroom to the bedroom.

This new edition includes up-to-date information and references, along with an epilogue that examines how the legacy of the Cold War has shaped America since September 11, 2001.
