Heroes and Villains of the Millennial Generation, Volume 2
This book explores the heroes and villains of an entire generation of Americans—the Millennial generation, defined as people born between 1982 and 2000.
Authored by Millennials at the University of Richmond, Heroes and Villains of the Millennial Generation is based on a survey of 200 Millennials across the United States who were asked to list their heroes, and their villains.
To our surprise, a large number of people were listed as both heroes and villains.
These complex individuals are the focus of this book. They are: Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, parents, teachers, Edward Snowden, Batman, Lance Armstrong, Mother Teresa, Severus Snape, Michael Jackson, and Mark Zuckerberg.
Heroes and Villains of the Millennial Generation provides an analysis of Millennials' views of heroism and villainy, drawing from current research on heroism science.
