Summary: A look back on ten tumultuous years that changed the world-the first in our new line of Dummies decade guides
It was a decade of war, protests, and assassinations; of hippies, feminists, and activists; of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. For anyone who lived through those years, or just wish they had, the 1960s are a source of endless fascination. Now, Dummies brings the decade back to life, from the assassinations of the Kennedy brothers and Martin Luther King to the moon landing ...show mores and beyond. This accessible overview captures the people, the politics, and the energy that made the '60s so unforgettable, including sections on:
* Long march to freedom: the Civil Rights movement
* Hell, no, we won't go: the anti-Vietnam War movement
* A woman's place outside the home: the women's liberation movement
* The greening of America: the environmental movement
* Tune in, turn on, drop out: rock 'n' roll, drugs, and hippies
* Plus fads and fashions, memorable TV shows, unforgettable political movements, and other intriguing trivia and lore
The book charts the many profound cultural changes the decade brought, and it shows how many of today's debates-on race, the family, the media, religion, feminism, welfare, drug use, the military, music, and art-actually began in the 1960s. For anyone who wants to tune in to the '60s, this book is the place to start. ...show less
