Memoirs of an Unfinished Generation by Edwin Spievack.

“Memoirs of an Unfinished Generation” (ISBN 1477511970) describes the author’s journey through the decline of late 20th century America. He tells the stories of those who fought for change – those born in the thirties that came of age in the 1950s and 60s, as they inherited enormously rich opportunities on the road to the last half of the 20th century, only to watch prosperity being closed off for the vast majority of Americans.

Spievack probes the social and political life of the nation through the prism of personal histories punctuated by wars and politicians at work undermining the country’s institutions.

The memoir explains how in the short period of a lifetime, democracy was replaced by big business control of government, labor and labor unions, income and debt, how the wealthiest Americans were permitted to fix the conditions under which Americans could or could not have jobs, and decide whether citizens and immigrants could make living wages from the jobs they were allowed to have, according to Spievack. Spievack describes “a generation that built a military-industrial complex for inciting the country to wars, crowded out the renewal of U.S. infrastructures, shortchanged the American Dream, destroyed the benefits of education, and moved jobs overseas to deny Americans the benefits of wage gains they achieved with rising productivity.”

The few members of the generations that fought to end wars and extend civil and social liberties ended up unfinished because they simply ran out of time. Spievack hopes his tale of the journey “will inspire present and future generations to change the country’s odds for the reassertion of prosperity.” In telling these tales of what a few did for change, “Memoirs of an Unfinished Generation” aspires to help plot a course for the crucial unfinished business that remains.

“Memoirs of an Unfurnished Generation: A Half Century of Wars and Whims” is available for sale online at and other channels.
