Political Generations and the Acceptance or Rejection of Nuclear Warfare
Jeffries, Vincent
Journal of Social Issues, 30, 3, 119-136, Sum 74
This paper examines differential attitudes toward the use in war of nuclear weapons among age strata, analyzed from the perspective of three political generations: "Dissent" (those born 1943-1949), "Cold War" (those born 1927-1942), and "World War II" (those born before 1927). The generation of "Dissent" was found to be least warlike in terms of rejection/acceptance of nuclear war, the generation of "World War II" the most warlike, and the "Cold War" generation intermediate between these two.
