From the Back Cover:

Drawn from a wide range of perspectives and showcasing a variety of primary source materials, Brian Ward’s The 1960s: A Documentary Reader includes over 50 primary documents and highlights the most important themes of the era. Cumulatively, the speeches, court decisions, acts of Congress, secret memos, song lyrics, cartoons, photographs, news reports, advertisements, and first-hand testimony collected in this reader take students from the New Left to the New Right, from Vietnam to Woodstock, from suburbia to the moon, and from evangelicals to environmentalists.

With headnotes that place each text into historical context and an introduction that examines the difficulties historians face when confronted with an abundance of diverse, often contradictory, evidence, The 1960s offers students a sophisticated introduction to this most beguiling yet elusive of decades.

About the Author:

Brian Ward is Professor of American Studies at the University of Manchester. His major publications include the award winning books Just My Soul Responding: Rhythm and Blues, Black Consciousness and Race Relations (1998) and Radio and the Struggle for Civil Rights in the South (2004). He is currently working on a book about the relationship between the American South and the world of British popular music.
