Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Now that those who grew up with the Vietnam War are retiring, the compilation and packaging of their oral testimonies is proceeding at a great pace on the web, as primary-source material for scholarly monographs, and in relatively unprocessed book form. Gurvis (Careers for Nonconformists), a freelance writer who often covers the unconventional and was herself formed in and of the Sixties, takes the "in their words" approach, and while she frames each of her themes (e.g., Kent State, war resistance, intentional communities) with introductory comments that are historically accurate and balanced, analysis is not this book's strength. Instead, it is the breadth of folks with whom Gurvis has corresponded, most of whom are, refreshingly, not famous. Actual hawks are present-hawks then and hawks now, the two sometimes not correlating-as are the progeny of this generation, which now seems so self-absorbed (if with the best intentions). Anyone not already personally invested in the Sixties legacy or not already familiar with its primary and secondary literature (not to mention sound and film cultural artifacts) will not be drawn in, but that leaves a very large group of readers. Recommended for academic libraries especially.-Scott H. Silverman, Bryn Mawr Coll. Lib., PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
