dc.description.abstract GenerAges examines the history and culture of the 20th century that shaped the lives of Americans age 65 and older today, with a special focus on the generations coming of age in the 1920s (centenarians), ‘40s (the Greatest Generation) and ‘60s (Age of Aquarius). The lengthy work is full of statistics and information regarding what was then the technological revolution of the early 20th century as well as the cultural revolution of the 1960s and early 1970s that ushered in a new era of civil rights and women’s liberation and equality. While this study emphasizes the enormous amount of technological, social and cultural change over the past century, it also stresses a certain commonality found among generations in their quest for peace and prosperity, and that “each will be on the cutting edge of fashion, technology and modern conveniences; and each will recede into history with relative rapidity, appearing amusingly antiquated in the process.” en_US
