Book Cover for 60s the Decade that Rocked the World (1)
Author Sherill Tippins comments, “With precision and insight, Mike and Laurence Peters demonstrate that it takes both individuals and coalitions to make a revolution. From Bob Dylan’s lightning bolt, “Like a Rolling Stone,” to the Freedom Riders’ painstakingly-planned symbolic protest, to American intellectuals’ boycott of LBJ’s Festival of the Arts, through Betty Friedan’s feminist outcry and Eldridge Cleaver’s Soul on Ice, we see a population rise up and attempt to take control of the society that created it. A thoughtful analysis of a decade of social action and a valuable handbook for generations to come.”
(Sherill Tippins, is author of Inside the Dream Palace: The Life and Times of New York’s Legendary Chelsea Hotel)
