MEDIA REVIEWS
"This set provides a balanced approach to the 1960s that is not always found in other similar resources. The articles are well-written and provide bibliographic sources, emphasizing the work's scholarly approach to the subject. This resource will help fill a gap in the literature and help students understand the era in a more balanced way that reflects more than the legends surrounding it. It will serve well as a supplement to other contemporary U.S. history sources in high school and academic libraries." - ARBA
