Overview

In 1969, man landed on the moon; the “Miracle Mets” captivated sports fans; students took over college campuses and demonstrators battled police; America witnessed the Woodstock music festival; Hollywood produced Easy Rider; Kurt Vonnegut published Slaughterhouse-Five; punk music was born; and there was murder at Altamont Speedway. Compelling, timely, and a blast to read, 1969 chronicles the year in culture and society, sports, music, film, politics, and technology. This rich, comprehensive history is perfect for those who survived 1969 or for those who simply want to feel as though they did.

Editorial Reviews

Peter King - Sports Illustrated
“Kalb asks the kind of common-sense questions you think of from time to time that never get much of an airing…The thing I like about Elliott is that we disagree more than we agree on the sports scene, but I learn something from him every time we talk. Good reason to check his book out.”
History Channel Magazine
“A compelling account of the historic year.”
Library Journal

In this compelling and freewheeling account, Kirkpatrick (The Words and Music of Bruce Springsteen) treats the tumultuous events of 1969 with the skills of a journalist, a historian, a sociologist, and a sportswriter and manages to insert moments of lightness and triviality into his grand tour. He writes as easily about jazz-pop as about the rise of the American Indian Movement. He follows a harrowing chapter about the Manson family and the Zodiac Killer with a breathless report on the Amazin' Mets. Later, he describes the surreal convergence of Game 4 of the World Series with the National Moratorium Day against the Vietnam War. In Kirkpatrick's account, Joe Namath receives more attention than Spiro Agnew. This is not a definitive, scholarly study of the year's events, but it serves well as a primer on the condition of American life at the end of the 1960s. In addition to over 500 endnotes, Kirkpatrick provides a handy time line of the year's significant events. Nostalgic for some, revelatory for others, this is a worthy addition to the literature of the 1960s.
—Thomas A. Karel

    an Absorbing Book!

    Finally, a book about a fascinating year in our country's history! 1969 was a year that challenged, changed, revolutionized, and entertained our nation, from politics, sports, music, the moon landing, the Vietnam war, its accompanying protests, Woodstock and so much more. Not only did it transition the 60's decade into the 70's decade, but many of the changes and influences are still felt today. Whether you were a part of 1969 or not, you will want to capture the feeling of this pivotal year. Once you start reading 1969, The Year Everything Changed, you will not want to put it down!

    A classic book about a classic year!

    It's about time someone wrote a book on this amazing year. '1969' delves deep into what the author calls the zeitgeist or "time spirit" of the year and recreates the feeling of living through the most fascinating year of a most fascinating decade. Think of it - in the same year, America witnessed the moon landing, Charles Manson, Woodstock, Joe Namath's guaranteed Super Bowl upset of the Colts, the "miracle" Mets, historic tours from the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, Midnight Cowboy and Easy Rider, Oh Calcutta and Hair, so many classic albums and films. This is a fine addition to literature on recent American history.

    The book starts out well and Kirkpatrick clearly shows why 1969

    The book starts out well and Kirkpatrick clearly shows why 1969 is the
    year everything changed. Its an interesting look at social history. I
    felt that there was too much emphasis on the gory details l about the
    Manson and Zodiac killings. I skimmed most of the chapters on
    baseball, but a fan would probably enjoy them.

    Engrossing, exhaustive, and enjoyable!

    This is an incredibly detailed and fascinating history of an important year. The author captures the spirit of living through an amazing 12-month period in America. "1969, The Year Everything Changed" is the first and only book to tell the story of this pivotal year!

    Misleading

    This book is neither the 1st nor only book on this topic. Moreover I find the 1st few reviews to sound as if they were written by the same hand.
