I am seeking contributors to “The Baby Boom,” a volume I am editing in ABC-Clio’s American Social History series (Peter Mancall, General Editor). The series examines major events in U.S. history from the perspective of average Americans and is intended primarily for undergraduates. Each volume consists of “lively and anecdotal” chapters of 5,000 – 7,000 words focused on specific social groups, as well as a chronology, primary documents, a glossary, and an annotated bibliography.
I am seeking contributors to write on one or more of the following subjects:
Children and Teenagers
The poor and impoverished
Countercultural groups (i.e., the Beats, Hippies, environmentalists, hip-hop culture, etc.)
The “Organization Man” (corporate men and women)
Suburbanites and Yuppies
If you are interested in writing one of these chapters, or would like further details about the project, please contact Rusty Monhollon (firstname.lastname@example.org); please attach a c.v. Contributors will receive a modest stipend and a copy of the book.
