"A vital and innovative book that accomplishes the critical task of evolving our conceptions of nostalgia, the Fifties, and the Reagan Era itself through richly detailed analyses of landmark films, soundtracks, music videos, performers, and star legacies. Dwyer's text is accessible, thoroughly compelling, and deftly attuned to the complexities of popular culture and the nuances of our relationship with its history and expressions."--Christine Sprengler, author of Screening Nostalgia, Western University
"Dwyer's examination of the '70s and '80s re-appropriation of an idealized Fifties proves a fascinating read, one which finds a number of parallels between the political climate of the era and the pop cultural landscape."--PopMatters
