Summary
"[The author] explores the compelling democratic vision that grounded Sixties movements and traces its evolution through the concrete experiences of the civil rights and black power movements, the new student left and the campus revolt, Vietnam and the antiwar movement, and the counterculture. Using first-person material, narrative accounts, and evocative excerpts from popular culture, he brings alive the vibrant energy and intense feelings generated by movement experiences. He also traces the connection of the women's and ecology movements to the Sixties experience, outlining their contribution, and that of a "revitalized Left," to the enduring legacies of the 1960s."--Back cover
