  Silent Generation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name Silent Generation was coined in the November 5, 1951 cover story of Time to refer to the generation coming of age at the time.
The phrase gained further currency after William Manchester's comment that the members of this generation were "withdrawn, cautious, unimaginative, indifferent, unadventurous and silent." The name was used by Strauss and Howe in their book Generations as their designation for that generation in the United States of America born from 1925 to 1942.
The impact of the generation was also great culturally, as the musicians and thinkers such as Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Bob Dylan who shaped the fashions of the younger boomers and formed the engine behind the 1960s and 1970s.

 New Silent Generation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The New Silent Generation is a proposed holding name used by Neil Howe and William Strauss in their demographic history of America, Generations, to describe the generation whose birth years begin in 1999 and continue to an as yet unknown year in the future, most likely the year 2017.
The term is a reflection of Howe's and Strauss's theory that the characteristics of American generations are cyclical, and the generation currently being born will share characteristics with the Silent Generation, born in the span of years between 1925 and 1945.
Due to the popular use of the terms Generation X and Generation Y, especially among the market research community, the New Silent Generation is sometimes referred to as Generation Z or the Zoog Generation, because of the birth of Zoog Disney around the time this generation began.

 History
Generations: The History of America’s Future and The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy, William Strauss and Neil Howe outline a fascinating theory of generational cycles in history that has numerous implications for many subfields in psychology, including the psychology of personality, social psychology, abnormal psychology, and child development.
This is an Idealist or Prophetic generation (most recently, the Boomer generation, born between 1943 and 1960): intensely inner-directed, value-driven, autonomous, idealistic, otherworldly, and generally contemptuous of "the Establishment" erected half a saeculum ago by their grandparents and so assiduously tended by their parents.
The last such generation was the generation (born between 1901 and 1927) who, as young adults, fought and won World War II: Strauss and Howe note many similarities between the young people of the Great Depression and today's Millennials.

 September 5, 2003 -- Vincent Fiore: The Silent Generation
It was than I came upon the chapter in Buckley's book entitled "The Silent Generation." It is the chapter that dealt with {at that time in 1959} the youth of the country and its uninspired behavior toward politics and the politicians in it.
In the 2000 presidential election, a meager 32.3% of Generation X and Generation Y, or "echo boomers" as they are sometimes tagged, managed to leave the self absorbing confines of their computers and the mind mush of reality TV programs for a night and exercise their right to vote.
The original silent generation, those born between 1925 and 1942, were the "generation without a cause," so conformity naturally followed.

Silent Generation children were born just as the nation entered a fourth turning.
As the Silent Generation moved into positions of influence and power in the late 1970s through the early 1990s, the found themselves entering a third turning known as the "Culture Wars." The Reagan Revolution began in 1981 with its decidedly ideological agenda.
Born too early to partake in the glory of their elders and too late to fully embrace a radical new generation coming behind them, the Silent Generation often found itself trapped between loyalty to old institutions of a passing generation and the desire for institutions with a friendly face from a younger generation.

 Investor's Business Daily: Breaking News
Fewer than half of Silent Generation retirees (45%) and pre-retirees (43%) say that it is important to leave an inheritance to anyone other than their spouse.
While the Silent Generation in this report has carefully saved for retirement, many pre-retirees and retirees are not as informed as they should about their longevity risk and have not taken steps to ensure that they will have enough money to last throughout their lifetime.
One reason for the Silent Generation's failure to address longevity risk may be their tendency to focus on short-term rather than long-term issues.

 McCain is Silent Generation's last chance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
That Silents haven't been terrific vote-getters doesn't surprise a lot of demographers, because the 1943-61 baby boomer generation numbered 79 million and the 1901-24 GIs totaled 63 million.
Silents have a reputation for being good listeners and promoting a dialogue between the generations, but that's overblown.
McCain is a good example of a generation caught in forces far beyond its control, with the country a house divided that somehow remained loyal and patriotic without making a big deal out of it.

 The Fedora Chronicles - "The Silent Generation who didn't wear fedoras"
Even the war that the "silent generation" fought (Korea) was completely overshadowed, and when they returned, having done their part and their duty like their fathers and older brothers, they did not return to the homecoming they might have expected- that they might have had a right to expect.
It's now a new millenium, and we are the generations that came after "the silent generation", and were by and large brought up in a hatless world.
We no longer encounter "the greatest generation" in the course of our normal lives, and for the first time we can wear one of their emblems as perhaps a tribute to that generation, instead of fearing a face-to-face encounter with a "rightful owner".

 Silent Generation (There was/is a generation between the "Greatest " and the "Boomers") [Free Republic]
I knew that I was far too young to be part of the G.I. generation, but I finally had to look it up to reassure myself that I really wasn't a Boomer (I was born in '41, part of the "tail-end" of the Silents).
We Silents are the Rodney Dangerfields of generations I guess.
On the other hand, someone born in 1910 would have been hit with the depression just when they were starting to try to make their own way and then in '41 would have still been young enough to have joined the army.
