The seminal work on generations from the acclaimed authors of The Fourth Turning. The Strauss-Howe generational theory explains how generations evolve, and how they affect our society--from hundreds of years in the past to decades in the future.

William Strauss and Neil Howe posit the history of America as a succession of generational biographies, beginning in 1584 and encompassing everyone through the children of today. Their bold theory is that each generation belongs to one of four types, and that these types repeat sequentially in a fixed pattern. The vision of Generations allows us to plot a recurring cycle in American history--a cycle of spiritual awakenings and secular crises--from the founding colonists through the present day and well into this millennium.

Generations is at once a refreshing historical narrative and a thrilling intuitive leap that reorders not only our history books but also our expectations for the twenty-first century.
