Post-War Childhood

Growing Up in the Not-So-Friendly 'Baby Boomer' Years

Simon Webb

Looking back to children’s education, play, home life and health in the 1950s, Simon Webb paints a realistic picture of childhood, often at odds with baby boomers’ own memories of those years. Using documented evidence and examples, he discusses topics including sexual abuse, juvenile crime, playground hazards, and fears about the new media of television and comics in the post-war decade, arguing that children’s lives today are far safer, healthier and happier.
