From civil rights to free love, JFK to LSD, Woodstock to the Moonwalk, the Sixties was a time of change, political unrest, and radical experiments in the arts, sexuality, and personal identity. In this anthology of more than one hundred selections of essays, poetry, and fiction by some of America s most gifted writers, Ann Charters sketches the unfolding of this most turbulent decade.
"The Portable Sixties Reader" is organized into thematic chapters, from the Civil Rights movement to the Anti-Vietnam movement, the Free Speech movement, the Counterculture movement, drugs and the movement into Inner Space, the Beats and other fringe literary movements, the Black Arts movement, the Women s movement, and the Environmental movement. The concluding chapter, Elegies for the Sixties, offers tributes to ten figures whose lives and deaths captured the spirit of the decade.
