And the Crooked Places Made Straight by David M. Chalmers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This overview of the 1960s covers such topics as: the civil rights movement, the judicial revolution, the losing war on poverty, and the struggle between the media and the government over the Vietnam war. Also discussed are feminism's "second wave", the emergence of environmental, consumer and citizen movements, and the interactions between the youth culture, the counterculture and the marketplace. This revised edition continues its analysis into the 1990s, with the shadow of the Vietnam war still hanging over national policy, and the social ethic of the 1960s replaced by a counter revolution against taxes, social programmes, and the powers of central government.
