during this publication, Judy Kutulas complicates the typical view that the Nineteen Seventies have been a time of counterrevolution opposed to the unconventional actions and attitudes of the former decade. as a substitute, Kutulas argues that the studies and attitudes that have been radical within the Sixties have been changing into a part of mainstream tradition within the Nineteen Seventies, as sexual freedom, gender equality, and extra complicated notions of identification, paintings, and relatives have been normalized via well known culture--television, videos, track, political reasons, and the emergence of recent groups. likely mundane such things as observing The Mary Tyler Moore Show, hearing Carole King songs, wearing Birkenstock sandals, or examining Roots have been really serious in shaping american citizens' perceptions of themselves, their households, and their relation to authority.

Even as those cultural shifts ultimately gave strategy to a backlash of political and financial conservatism, Kutulas indicates that what critics understand because the narcissism of the Seventies used to be really the following logical step in an extended technique of assimilating Nineteen Sixties values like individuality and variety into way of life. Exploring such concerns as feminism, sexuality, and race, Kutulas demonstrates how pop culture helped many americans make feel of key changes in U.S. economics, society, politics, and tradition within the past due 20th century.
