Sandwiched between the placid fifties and the flamboyant seventies, the sixties, a decade of tumultuous change and stunning paradoxes, is often reduced to a series of slogans, symbols, and media images. In America in the Sixties, Greene goes beyond the cliches and synthesizes thirty years of research, writing, and teaching on one of the most turbulent decades of the twentieth century.

About the Author:

John Robert Greene is the Paul J. Schupf Professor of History and Humanities at Cazenovia College. He has written or edited seventeen books. He is a regular commentator in the national media, having appeared on such forums as MSNBC, National Public Radio, C-SPAN, and the History Channel.

From Publishers Weekly:

With a vexingly complicated start steeped in presidential history that lauds Eisenhower and dispels the "Kennedy Myth," Greene steamrollers into a fastidiously detailed but brisk names-and-places timeline of the Civil Rights movement, with the occasional fly-on-the-wall observation helping to break the monotony. Some of his historical discussions read like thinly-veiled commentary on current problem-solving, however, and he takes too long to break free of standard textbook content. Knowing his target audience, Greene finally takes a hard left to deliver on the his promise (a "readable, concise, and scholarly" approach "that attempts to meet the needs of both student and instructor alike"), providing a page-turning narrative of student unrest, feminism, constitutional rights, and the Vietnam War, interwoven with analyses of class stratification, emerging social ideology, and the shifting media culture. Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" nearly whispers into the readers' ears. But after exposing Nixon's dirty underbelly and paying a clichéd homage to pop culture, Greene abruptly wraps things up. And several topics that are now critical (the environment, education, immigration) are here only modestly grazed.
