Publisher Comments:

David Chalmers' widely acclaimed overview of the 1960s describes how the civil rights movement touched off a widening challenge to traditional values and arrangements. Chalmers recounts the judicial revolution that set national standards for race, politics, policing, and privacy. He examines the long, losing war on poverty and the struggle between the media and the government over the war in Vietnam. He follows feminism's "second wave" and the emergence of the environmental, consumer, and citizen action movements. And he explores the worlds of rock, sex, and drugs, and the entwining of the youth culture, the counterculture, and the American marketplace. This newly revised edition carries the story into the angry 1990s, in which the shadow of Vietnam still hangs over national policy and the social ethic of the sixties is overshadowed by a conservative counterrevolution against taxes, social programs, and the powers of the national government.

Book News Annotation:

A history of architecture driven by the ideas behind the buildings defining architectural styles from the Greeks to the present with an intellectual flair. The 15 contributing historians and architects develop the political themes of Versailles, the power and glory of medieval architecture, the industrial revolution and Hegelian philosophy in relation to modern architecture, and specific studies of Frank Lloyd Wright, Aldo Rossi, and Rob Krier. Avoiding the encyclopedic approach, the volume excavates deeper into the foundations of architectural history.

This overview of the 1960s covers such topics as: the civil rights movement, the judicial revolution, the losing war on poverty, and the struggle between the media and the government over the Vietnam war. Also discussed are feminism's "second wave", and the emergence of environmental groups.

Synopsis:

David Chalmers has given us a thoughtful, incisive account of those momentous events- the civil rights movement, the assault on poverty, the student rebellions, the development of a counterculture, a new wave of feminism, and, pervading so much of all this, the veritable civil war at home over Vietnam War abroad.
