"What was this decade called the Sixties? Civil rights and Vietnam War protests? The War on Poverty? Ecology, communes, and Woodstock? Psychedelic drugs and art? A generation finding a new voice, and a loss of faith and innocence?
The 1960s were all of these and more, and the legacy of the powerful movements it generated is still with us. In this fascinating collection of speeches, articles, and manifestos, that turbulent decade is reflected with the power and vitality of firsthand reportage. The most important and influential voices of the 60s are heard here: Martin Luther King Jr, and JFK, Daniel Berrigan, Tom Hayden, Bob Dylan, Mark Rudd and Jerry Rubin, and many others." ~excerpt from the inner book jacket of The 60s Reader
