As the Cold War dawned, America experienced sweeping changes in its public affairs. At the same time, there was an explosion in creativity, an awakening that gave rise to new visions of modern art, intellectual inquiry, popular culture, and even the American identity itself. May (American studies, U. of Minnesota) has assembled 14 essays that address the origins of that postwar world and offer portraits of the culture--bebop and Chicano rock-and-roll, abstract expressionism, the film industry, and family life.
