50 Years of British Teenagers
A pictorial history of the strange world of British teenagers: their peculiar ways and habits from the 1950s to the present day. Once upon a time children became young adults without an intervening larval state, seemingly putting away their toys on one day and starting work the next. But then the changing world of post-war Britain meant that young people had the freedom, leisure and disposable income to develop their own music, fashions and subcultures, leading to an entirely new social phenomenon: the teenager. This book will provide useful research material for social anthropologists and wry amusement for today's teenagers and their handlers alike.
