Journey down a typical Main Street, sit back and learn about TV's first hit shows, or travel back to the show-room to examine the latest range on offer from Cadillac and other auto-manufacturers. Remembering the 40s is a fascinating and colourful mix of nostalgia, pop culture, and authoritative history that will appeal to a wide range of readers. The book examines every aspect of American life during the decade when the nation achieved superpowerdom. It focuses especially on the colourful affluent post-war years which saw the emergence of many key US institutions and products - from network television and the Top Twenty to microwave ovens and frozen food. The book includes features on topics of special interest from 'The New Look' to the rage for Hawaiian cuisine and style.
