Overview

At his inauguration in January 1961, President John F. Kennedy declared that "the torch has now been passed to a new generation of Americans." But not even the visionary president could have imagined what lay ahead.

A year after the Cuban Missile Crisis nearly erupted into nuclear war, President Kennedy was gunned down by an assassin. Throughout the Sixties, African-Americans, women, and other marginalized people marched for and demanded equal rights. War raged in Vietnam, killing and alienating America's youth. Many young people dropped out of society, choosing a community of free love, "flower power," and psychedelia. By the time Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon in 1969, the country had witnessed one of the most turbulent decades in modern history.

This book relives the decade that redefined America. Hundreds of captivating photographs - many in full color - accompany detailed captions, in-depth essays, and a timeline that runs throughout the book. Experience all of the era's compelling drama in The Sixties Chronicle.
