Summary

America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960s, Fourth Edition, is the definitive interpretive survey of the political, social, and cultural history of 1960s America. Written by two top experts on the era-Maurice Isserman, a scholar of the Left, and Michael Kazin, a specialist in Right-wing politics and culture-this book provides a compelling tale of this tumultuous era filled with fresh and persuasive insights.

For the fourth edition the authors have updated the text in light of new research, offering strong and thoughtful analysis of such key topics as the U.S. entry into the Vietnam War, youth culture, the New Left, and women and minority groups. Presenting the most even-handed overview of this turbulent period,America Divided, Fourth Edition, defines, discusses, and analyzes all sides of the political, social, and cultural conflicts of the 1960s in a swiftly moving narrative. It is ideal for courses in 1960s America and America since 1945, or for anyone interested in the last fifty years of American History.
