Book Synopsis
The book is a set of essays that examines the cultural and political meaning of the sixties through some key iconic events such as Dylan's decision to leave folk music behind and go electric, Mick Jagger's flirtation with radical politics through his involvement in the Grosvenor Square riots, Ellsberg's decision to leak the Pentagon papers and many other key episodes. Award winning writer 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)
