Overview

The Sixties: Years of Hope, Days of Rage by Todd Gitlin

Say "the Sixties" and the images start  coming, images of a time when all authority was  defied and millions of young Americans thought they  could change the world--either through music,  drugs, and universal love or by "putting their  bodies on the line" against injustice and  war.

Todd Gitlin, the highly regarded  writer, media critic, and professor of sociology at  the University of California, Berkeley, has written  an authoritative and compelling account of this  supercharged decade--a decade he helped shape as an  early president of Students for a Democratic  Society (SDS) and an organizer of the first national  demonstration against the Vietnam war. Part  critical history, part personal memoir, part celebration,  and part meditation, this critically acclaimed  work resurrects a generation on all its glory and  tragedy.
