On why our 20s are the most defining decade

Club membership may seem a trivial matter but those two changes symbolized the transformation of the status of the Jews. Barriers were falling and Jews were finding new opportunities. The Jews themselves were changing. Harold Troper, in his new book, The Defining Decade: Identity, Politics, and the Canadian Jewish Community in the 1960s (University of Toronto Press), deftly organizes the details of this earthquake in human relations.

Describes why the twenties can be the most defining decade of adulthood and offers tips on making the most of work and relationships during this still-formative time in a person's life.

Yay! You're now following the defining decade in your .

The events in The Defining Decade began happening only 15 years after Vincent Massey, in London as Canada’s high commissioner, was doing his best to keep refugee Jews out of our country. But in the middle of the 1960s Toronto opened its new civic square with its new city hall and named it for Nathan Phillips, Toronto’s first Jewish mayor. Troper’s book amounts to an antidote for social pessimism, a reminder that sometimes long-overdue change can come astonishingly fast.

A clinical psychologist describes why she believes the years between ages 20-29 can be the most defining decade of adulthood and offers tips on making the most of work and relationships during this still-formative time in a person's life. 35,000 first printing.
