Playboy and the Making of the Good Life in Modern America

Elizabeth Fraterrigo

  • Uses Playboy, and the cultural developments and social commentary it responded to as well as inspired, as a lens onto transformations in postwar society and culture.
  • Explores how the magazine constructed ideals of masculinity and femininity and not just feminist opposition to it.
  • Looks at how the bachelor pad and urban life emerged as counterparts to suburbia and postwar culture.
