Susan Jacoby: The Last Men On Top

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, May 30, 2013 - 12:00pm

Working men of the 1940s and the 1950s have been idealized, satirized and criticized in print, in film and on television. But what was it really like to be a middle class working stiff in those decades before The Pill and Women’s Liberation? Was everything martinis and harassing women like on Madmen? Were they really “the greatest generation” like Tom Brokaw declares? Tune in when we welcome back journalist and author SUSAN JACOBY who has just written a book that is in part a memoir of her father, part social history and part media criticism called THE LAST MEN ON TOP.
