"The best single volume we have on America in the 1960s. For those who came of age during those years . . . Farber's powerfully written book will resonate, sending chills of recognition. For those too young to know the 1960s, [it] will instruct."William M. Tuttle, University of Kansas "The Sixties in a finely crafted nutshell; David Farber's is the best synthesis yet to appear."Jonathan Alter,Newsweek "Quite simply, the history of America in the 1960s that we have long awaited. Persuasively argued and elegantly written, it illuminates the intersection of political, social, cultural, economic, diplomatic, and military dynamics during this tumultuous decade, Once again David Farber demonstrates that good history makes for good reading. I couldn't put the book down."Richard H. Immerman, Temple University
