Overview
How can we make sense of the fact that after decades of right-wing political mobilizing, the major social changes wrought by the Sixties are more than ever part of American life? This collection of essays treats the last quarter of the 20th century as a distinct period of US history and rebut popular accounts that emphasize a conservative ascendancy. Tracing the ways in which US culture and politics continue to be shaped by the legacy of the New Left's social movements - from feminism to gay liberation and black power - these essays demonstrate that the America that emerged in the 1970s was a radically democratized nation.
