The 1960s... What do John F. Kennedy, Woodstock, the Barbie doll, Aretha Franklin, the miniskirt, and the Black Panthers have in common? Each, in some way, helped to define the 1960s, a period of great change in American life. The decade that started with the excitement of the election of the young President John Kennedy would end with race riots and violent protest of the war in Vietnam.

In The 1960s From the Vietnam War to Flower Power, Revised Edition, author Stephen Feinstein describes the triumphs, tragedies, fads, and fashions of the decade. From Martin Luther King, Jr., to bell-bottoms, from the moon landing to the Beatles, Feinstein examines the people and events that made the 1960s one of the most unique periods in American history.
