9780553372120: The Sixties: Years of Hope, Days of Rage

Say "the Sixties" and the images start  coming, images of a time when all authority was  defied and millions of young Americans thought they  could change the world--either through music,  drugs, and universal love or by "putting their  bodies on the line" against injustice and  war.



Todd Gitlin, the highly regarded  writer, media critic, and professor of sociology at  the University of California, Berkeley, has written  an authoritative and compelling account of this  supercharged decade--a decade he helped shape as an  early president of Students for a Democratic  Society (SDS) and an organizer of the first national  demonstration against the Vietnam war. Part  critical history, part personal memoir, part celebration,  and part meditation, this critically acclaimed  work resurrects a generation on all its glory and  tragedy.

Review:

The author was elected president of Students for a Democratic Society in 1963, and he brings an insider's perspective to bear on the turbulent whirl of political, social, and sexual rebellion we now call "the sixties." Gitlin does a nice job of integrating his first-person recollections with a broader history that ranges from the roots of 1960s revolt in 1950s affluence and complacency to the movement's apocalyptic collapse in the early 1970s--a victim of its own excesses as well as governmental persecution. His lucid summary of the complex strands that intertwined to form the counterculture is essential basic reading for those who don't know the difference between the Diggers and the Yippies. --Wendy Smith

Book Description:

The Sixties explodes any simplification about the decade and rekindles in us a sense of wonder about our recent past.
