Happy Days

Images of the Pre-Sixties Past in Seventies America

"In a lucid and entertaining volume, intellectual historian Ben Alpers' has offered us a rich and much-needed analysis of a decade too often portrayed as an 'age of innocence' that gave way to the more troubled 1960s and 1970s. Delivering nuanced readings of music, film, television, and popular politics, Alpers delivers not just a fresh take on the 1950s, but also demonstrates that nostalgia is a form of popular historical thinking, permitting Americans to accommodate the present by way of the past."

"Alpers exhibits a fine facility for analyzing closely a wide range of revealing artifacts, including music, film criticism, and public commemoration. The result is a history of popular culture that productively probes the meanings of history itself, for individuals contending with personal identity, for scholars seeking to avoid easy generalizations, and for American society as a whole."

Joan Shelley Rubin, author of The Making of Middlebrow Culture
