The definitive interpretive survey of the political, social and cultural history of 1960s America, this book is written by two of the top experts on the era -- Isserman, a scholar of the Left, and Kazin, a specialist in Right-wing politics and culture. Arguing that the period marked the end of the country's two-century-long ascent toward widespread affluence, domestic consensus,and international hegemony, the authors explore what did and did not change in the 1960s, and why American culture and politics have never been the same since.
