Acerca de


The Fifties Chronicle is an irresistible journey through the affluent and anxiety ridden decade of the 1950's. Anyone old enough to remember the fifties will find the era brought back to life with page after page of compelling insight and captivating photography. Those born too late will find a highly readable detailed portrait of another age that brought with it the Korean War, the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement and Rock and Roll. Over 900 stunning photographs help capture the decade, most with in-depth captions. Thematic essays provide the reader a better perspective for each year, including the Korean War (1951), The Civil Rights Movement (1955), The Arms Race (1957), and The Beat Generation (1959).
