Description

Is the notorious 'Generation X' any different from other generations in terms of its voting behavior, economic circumstances, or general social and political outlook? This book of original essays by distinguished political scientists, economists, and sociologists (some Xers themselves) will be among the first to examine patterns of political and social behavior among this least understood, yet widely maligned, generational group.
