"As McCarthyism swept across the United States and capitalism was king, white America enjoyed a feeling of pride and security that was reflected in advertising...Companies in the 50s promoted everything vacations in Las Vegas, where guests could watch atomic bombs detonate, to cigarettes as healthy mood-enhancers...a plethora of ads for just about anything the dollar could buy" (from the flyleaf). 

A hilarious and fun walk down Memory Lane of the 1950s.  A perfect gift for the person who has everything - especially if they grew up as a child of the 50s!

Book measures 10 1/4" x 7 7/8".  Approximately 2" thick.  928 pages.
