BeschreibungIn the midst of the Vietnam war, sit-ins, counter-culture, and campus rallies, the 1966 graduating class of a South New Jersey coast high school came of age on the margins of political and cultural upheaval. This study reveals this group to be conservative teenagers shaped by mainstream loyalties to God, country, and family.

Pressestimmen"Seeking to challenge the notion that all members of the '60s generation 'raised holy hell as they grooved on acid rock, smoked grass, dropped acid, and fought against authority in general and the Vietnam War makers in particular,' Lyons interviewed 47 graduates of the class of 1966 at Coastal High School, the fictionalized name of a southern New Jersey high school in the suburbs of Atlantic City. The different chapters--'Vietnam,' 'The Sixties,' 'White on Black,' 'Growing Up Female'--hit all the major topics, and the interviewees come across as honest and frank about their experiences." --Publishers Weekly
