Description:

This paper describes the vast differences between the America of the 1950's and the America of the 1960's. In this argumentative essay, the author describes the 50's as a time that restored puritanical traditional values to society, and the 60's as a time of national discontent and revolution. The paper discusses McCarthyism, the Cold War, the civil rights movement and Nixon's presidency.

From the Paper:

"Prior to the 1950’s, the American dream was popularly asserted as “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” or at least a similar variation on that ideal. The aftermath of World War II however, saw a hyper-compensation for the potential of disillusionment with strategic product placement, quality family programming on television and, generally speaking, a restoration of puritanical American traditional values. The American dream became two shiny Buicks in a suburban driveway, Pat Boone and a sanitized version of human reality, complete with celibacy, a guise of spirituality and repressed hostility."
