Generations in America

I seem to have bookmarked this study of American generations a while back, and recently found it again prowling through old bookmarks.  The key concept is that each generation raises its children in reaction to the way they themselves were raised, and that we can therefore see roughly an eighty-year cycle in American history (but you can see the same sorts of patterns in other countries, of course).

Pretty excellent stuff.
