This book examines the gulf between the history and mythology that has grown up around different aspects of the Sixties, ranging from the counterculture to gay rights to the student and women's movements to the Johnson presidency. One of the volumes launching the Viewpoints of American Culture series, this collection of original essays features writing by scholars and public figures, including Tom Wicker, John D'Emilio, and Julian Bond, and includes their personal reflections on the decade.
