Using a variety of sources from sociological studies to popular magazines, it describes their home, work, and school lives, patterns of dating and sex, trends in alcohol and drug use, teen tastes in books, music, and movies and use of slang and fashion. It shows how teens have responded to the political events that have characterized each decade, and demonstrates that the teen violence that seems to characterize the 1990s is not new. Sixty-two illustrations make the personalities interests and media of each decade come alive for students of history, literature and popular culture."-

  • Better Luck Tomorrow
    A film by Justin Lin; MTV Films; producers, Julie Asato, Ernesto M. Foronda, Justin Lin; director, Justin Lin. Hollywood: Paramount, 2003. DVD 100 minutes. "Ben is the stereotypical 'model minority' Asian American - an intelligent, hard-working high school freshman, confident that he is bound for an Ivy League college. Approached by Daric, the savvy senior valedictorian, Ben and his friends Virgil and Han start selling cheat sheets. This clandestine 'business' spirals into scams at stores, stealing a new shipment of computers from the school, and eventually into selling drugs. Between working at a fast-food restaurant and volunteering at the local hospital, Ben discovers that kids who are smart enough can get away with anything. As their lives careen into a mix of drugs, sex, violence - and Academic Decathlon tournaments - Ben and his suburban gang challenge the stereotypes of youth, Asian Americans, and suburban life. Justin Lin's Better Luck Tomorrow is an unsettling exploration of adolescence, cleverly captured through the SAT vocabulary words that Ben memorizes daily: 'quixotic', 'temerity', and 'catharsis'."
