New Left, New Right and Beyond: Taking the Sixties Seriously

Overview

Overview

The 1960s represented a defining turning point in the politics and cultures of western societies. The emergence of a mass culture, the explosion of pop and new art forms, the rise of "new-left" social movements in the wake of "1968," and the first signs of a more global politics brought into question long-held assumptions. The articulation of new ideas of liberation, equality and identity and the arrival of the so-called cultural revolution combined to remake new forms of community. But what of the lasting political and cultural legacies of the sixties? In this book, a range of leading thinkers show how the sixties continue to influence contemporary debates on globalization and democracy and argue that the implications of the "long sixties" are still not fully realized.
