Reviewing the Expectations: The "Generation Gap" Revisited.
Elkind, David
NASSP Bulletin, v72 n506 p34-41 Mar 1988
Refutes sociological and anthropological theories about the generation gap held by Kingsley Davis, Margaret Mead, and Ruth Benedict. Argues for a psychological interpretation of intergenerational conflict. The latter is not a product of adult rigidity, but a natural consequence of adult generational responsibility toward youth.
