The World the Sixties Made: Politics and Culture in Recent America (Critical Perspectives on the Past) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How can we make sense of the fact that after decades of right wing political mobilizing the major social changes wrought by the Sixties are more than ever part of American life? "The World the Sixties Made, the first academic collection to treat the last quarter of the twentieth century as a distinct period of U.S. history, rebuts popular accounts that emphasize a conservative ascendancy. The essays in this volume survey a vast historical terrain to lease out the meaning of the not-so-long ago. They trace the ways in which recent U.S. culture and politics continue to be shaped by the legacy of the New Left's social movements, from feminism to gay liberation to black power. Together these essays demonstrate that the America that emerged in the 1970s was a nation profoundly even radically democratized.
