Summary
This is Who We Were follows volumes on the forties and fifties, and presents 30 profiles of people--life at home and at work, life in the community. It defines who we were by our jobs, clothes, leisure time, food, travel, what we watched and read, how we traveled, and includes US Census comparisons and rankings, and state-by-state census data. It endeavors to present a complete picture of what it was like to live in America in the sixties. This volume describes a decade that saw the arrival of the Beatles and Cuban refugees, the expansion of the NBA, Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, antiwar marches, the advent of oral contraceptives, and the expansion of the economy. The book is organized into five sections: profiles; historical snapshots; economy of the times; all around us?what we saw, wrote, read, and listened to; and census data. There is an essay on the 1960s, and a bibliography
