New World Coming: The Sixties and the Shaping of Global Consciousness is a collection of the most innovative essays from a major international conference of the same name, held at Queen's University from June 13-16, 2007. The collection examines the many ways in which a 'global consciousness' was forged during the Sixties.

In various sections, essays examine the ways revolution was imagined throughout the Sixties, the implications of the 'nation' for various liberation movements, the complex politicization of bodies during this time, and the enduring legacy of the period in terms of lasting political movements and cultural landscapes.

Featuring a colour insert of protest poster art, this is the first anthology of its kind to bring scholars from many areas of the world together to discuss and debate the meaning and impact of these vastly transformative years.

Review:


PRAISE FOR NEW WORLD COMING

'New World Coming is a powerful contribution to the meaning of the sixties for today. Legacies of the sixties are all around us, from the participative democracy of Venezuela's Bolivarian revolution to the passionate 2008 presidential campaign of the Obama generation. Yet the sixties are remembered only narrowly, not as a unique worldwide rebellion against the global status quo. New World Coming enters the battlefield of memory against those who would discredit the legacy before it repeats.'
-Tom Hayden, author, The Long Sixties: From 1960 to Barack Obama and Writings for a Democratic Society

'This volume provides useful steps to take us beyond stereotypes of the "excessive decade" and "idealisms" in order that we may delve into the contradictory richness of a decisive stage of the twentieth century, full of generative radicalisms and polarities. The historical undercurrents reach us today.'
-Rafael Hernández, editor, Revista Temas (Havana)

"This must-read eclectic collection of often pioneering articles provides a nuanced view of how the world was changing and how it was not in the 1960s. These highly readable articles, casting a critical eye on every corner of the globe, and every social movement, put the scholarly critical spin on 'The Times They Are a-Changin.' "
-Alvin Finkel, Professor of History, Athabasca University, editor, Labour/Le Travail

'A groundbreaking contribution to our understanding of the culture and politics of the 1960s. Unlike most studies of the period, which focus on youth revolt, student unrest, and middle-class alienation within the United States, this collection follows a different path-tracing the many meanings of 'liberation' from Mexican rockers complicating Cuba's dominance in Latin American resistance movements to youth culture in Dakar to feminism in Palestine and Brazil.'
-Patrice Petro, Professor of English and Film Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

'There is a tendency among some historians to tame the sixties, to turn a series of world-spanning uprisings into a safe nostalgic soundtrack. New World Coming restores the radicalism of the sixties, a period that initiated battles over power and privilege that continue to be fought to this day. The book is a model of committed, incisive, readable, and relevant scholarship.'
-Jeet Heer, journalist and historian

"New World Coming is a major reinterpretation that redefines the sixties experience in a global context. Utilizing a rich, diverse, and impressive breadth of work that straddles the globe from Sarnia to Palestine and just about everywhere in between, the collection makes us rethink our most basic assumptions of place, space, and meaning when it comes to this evocative period in history. This is a significant contribution to the historiography of the time, and an important new departure in sixties studies that gives readers an original perspective."
-Dimitry Anastakis, Professor of History, Trent University, editor, The Sixties: Passion, Politics and Style

"This collection of essays reminds us that the sixties were more than drugs and hippies. Contributors analyze and dissect the various meanings of this decade that still reverberates with us. This is definitely a book to possess for the richness of the contributions."
-Marcel Martel, Associate Professor of History, York University

"Do you like your 'Sixties' hard-boiled or over easy; well-done or bleu? No matter, the menu of this eclectic collection accommodates most tastes."
-Left History
