Generation Gap

Why the Baby Boomers Still Dominate American Politics and Culture

Columbia University Press 2022

In Generation Gap: Why the Baby Boomers Still Dominate American Politics and Culture (Columbia UP, 2022), Kevin Munger marshals novel data and survey evidence to argue that generational conflict will define the politics of the next decade. He shows that a common "cohort consciousness" binds aging Boomer voters into a bloc--but a shared identity and purpose among Millennials and Gen Z could topple Boomer power.

Kevin Munger is an assistant professor of political science and social data analytics at Penn State University.
