Embattled Paradise by Arlene S. Skolnick
Book DescriptionWas there really a golden age of the family in the 1950s--or ever? This penetrating history of the American family mounts a withering criticism of the "culture of nostalgia" that clouds current debate and offers a plan for reconstituting the American family dream.
