The Age of Great Dreams
America in the 1960sBook - 1994
Looks at the sixties in terms of its place in American history, and discusses the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, the War on Poverty, and the drug culture
In this book, David Farber grounds our understanding of the extraordinary history of the 1960s by linking the events of that era to our country's grand projects of previous decades. Farber's important study, based on years of research in archives and oral histories as well as in historical literature, explores Vietnam, the Civil Rights Act, the War on Poverty, the entertainment business, the drug culture, and much more.
