Baby Boomers, What Did You DO?
For the American baby-boom generation, the world was their oyster. Fascist powers had been defeated, communism was being held at bay, the Great Depression was long past, and everybody had cars.
But the boomers wanted more, more freedom, less constraint from the society of their elders. They got a lot of it, and millennial Helen Andrews now takes them to task for it, in her book Boomers: The Men and Women Who Promised Freedom and Delivered Disaster.
The book profiles six notable figures of the Boomer generation, and their individual and collective legacies. The author joins us to unwind the tale.
