Terry Anderson's The Sixties is a concise yet thorough survey of the tumultuous and immensely consequential 1960's. After a brief introduction on the postwar years, this book explores the significant political, foreign policy, social, and cultural events from the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins and presidential campaign to the high tide of women's liberation and American withdrawal from Vietnam in 1973. The new edition has added more material on women and the GLBTQ community, as well as on Hispanic or Latino/a community - the fastest-growing minority in the United States. More than an explanation of the conflicts over race, class, sexuality and the Vietnam War that erupted during this era, the book explores why many citizens at that time felt change was not only necessary, but mandatory.
