The fifties : the way we really were by Douglas T Miller( Book )

12 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 1,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Come back with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear, to the days of bobby sox, soda fountains, Elvis Presley and American Bandstand, hot rods and James Dean. But come back, too, to the "fabulous era" remembered less nostalgically as "a moral disaster" and "one of the worst decades in the history of man." Here is the first in-depth social and cultural history of the fifties: the decade that brought America the anticommunist hysteria of the McCarthy hearings, the Cold War and bomb shelters, "I Like Ike" and "I Love Lucy," quiz show scandals, the Korean War, Richard Nixon's Checkers speech, "the man in the gray flannel suit" arid the Beat Generation, Norman Vincent Peale, Mickey Spillane and Marilyn Monroe, rock and roll, the Kinsey Report, and an ugly racial confrontation at a high school in Little Rock. It was a decade that began in prosperity and national faith and ended in doubt, uneasiness, and a yearning for change. A generation in which the proliferation of TVs, suburbs, and automobiles radically changed the way we lived and the way we thought. An era in which the corruption and waste of "the affluent society" was beginning to mushroom. A period in which consensus was the highest goal and nonconformity the greatest sin, but in which the revolutionary ideas of the sixties were already simmering beneath the surface of conventional morality. In short, a decade that has much to tell us about how we got to be what we are today. After years of research, the authors have written an angry, funny, and insightful book that puts into perspective the contradictions of this critical period in our nation's recent past.--Adapted from book jacket

On our own : Americans in the sixties by Douglas T Miller( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixties, broadly conceived as encompassing the years from the midfifties through the early seventies, was an extraordinary period in American history, a time when an unprecedented number of people sought to transform their society ... [The book] attempts to comprehend and explain this highly complex and still-controversial era ... [The author's] goal in appraising America in the 1960s is to synthesize: to integrate [his] own primary research over the past twenty years with the best of the new social history as well as with the more customary political, economic, diplomatic, and intellectual histories. This approach, both interdisciplinary and analytical, aims to create a holistic account that makes comprehensible the issues, conflicts, and human sturggles of this period

Exploring the health-wealth nexus by Jonathan Meer( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The casual links between health and economic resources have long concerned social scientists. We use four waves of data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics to analyze the impact of wealth upon an individual's health status. The difficulty in approaching this task that has bedeviled previous studies is that wealth may be endogenous; a priori, it is just as likely that changes in health affect wealth as vice versa. We argue that inheritance is a suitable instrument for the change in wealth, and implement a straightforward instrumental variables strategy to deal with this problem. Our results suggest that the causal relationship running from wealth to health may not be as strong as first appears. In the data, wealth exerts a positive and statistically significant effect on health status, but it is very small in magnitude. Instrumental variables estimation leaves the point estimate approximately the same, but renders it insignificantly different from zero. And even when the point estimate is increased by twice its standard error, the quantitative effect is small. We conclude that the wealth-health connection is not driven by short run changes in wealth
