B01From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up-The aim of this volume is to present eyewitness accounts of significant events for analysis by students. Chapters touch on such topics as feminism, war protests, civil rights, free speech, the hippie culture, and the birth of yippies. The text comes from primary-source material-from figures such as Huey Newton, Carletta Fields, and Eldridge Cleaver-which was actually written during the '60s as well as excerpts from books written well after that decade. Tom Hayden's piece is an excerpt from Reunion: A Memoir (Random, 1988; o.p.). The introduction explains his involvement with the SDS and the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, but does not mention the book's year of publication. There are some intriguing sidebars, such as the letter Joan Baez wrote to the IRS explaining why she would not pay the estimated 60% of her taxes earmarked for the Vietnam War effort. A 19-page introduction gives an overview of the times, and a section for further research contains six rather scattershot Web sites. The layout of the book is inviting and involving. Students might find this information useful for reports but because of the retrospect remembering, the book might actually be confusing. It's unfortunate that the editor did not note when the excerpts were written, except in the "Further Research" listings.
