Nationalism, Nuclear Policy and Children in Cold War America.
Stephens, Sharon
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v4 n1 p103-23 Feb 1997
Theorizes the place of children in America's "Cold War Consensus" of the 1950s-60s. Counterposes dominant Cold War images of abstract, generic children (inevitably white middle class) to actual children most vulnerable to risks associated with nuclear weapons production and testing. Concludes that in various ways, these children were all perceived as "deviant" and worth sacrificing to protect "normal" children. (EV)
