Summary

"This written guide to the forces that shaped the 1960s cultural revolution examines the New Left, the antiwar movement, and the counterculture. A narrative historical overview puts the decade in perspective. Essays follow on each of the above topics, and a concluding essay discusses the legacy of the era. The work also features a wealth of ready-reference material - a comprehensive timeline of events of the 1960s, biographical profiles of key players, the text of important primary documents associated with the political, social, and cultural rebellion, a glossary of terms, and a helpful annotated bibliography of print and nonprint materials, all of which will help students to gain a deeper understanding of this dynamic period."--BOOK JACKET.
