Overview

The Eve of Destruction: How 1965 Transformed America by James T. Patterson

e much more staid recordings of contemporary acts like Frank Sinatra, Julie Andrews, and the Supremes, reflecting an alienation from mainstream American culture shared by an increasing number of young Americans.

In The First Year of the Sixties, James T. Patterson traces the transformative events of this critical year, showing how 1965 saw an idealistic and upbeat nation derailed by developments both at home and abroad. An entire generation of Americans—as well as the country’s politics, culture, race relations, and foreign policies—would never be the same.

I loved this book. From what I can personally remember of year 1965 I think events were truly shattering to our culure and political system with escalation of war in Vietnam being the centerpiece. This book helps to describe and explain it all. Thanks.
