From gentlemen callers to big men on campus, from Coke dates to 'parking', this book is the vivid historybor dating in America. In chronicling a dramatic shift in patterns of courtship between the 1920's and the 1960's the author offers a provocative view of how we sought our mates - and of what accounted for our behavior.
