MEDIA REVIEWS
?Ward has crafted a cool, clever, and incisive Sixties reader. . . . Pedagogically sophisticated and thought-provoking, this reader gives instructors an invaluable tool as it gives students a wide-ranging tour of Sixties politics and culture.? David Farber, Temple University, author of The Age of Great Dreams: America in the 1960s "With his thoughtful introduction and excellent selection of documents, Brian Ward has done an outstanding job of bringing to life the complexities and contradictions of the era." Kevin M. Kruse, Princeton University, author of White Flight: Atlanta and the Making of Modern Conservatism ?Ward recaptures much of the variety, vitality, and energy of the 1960s. . . . Taken together these documents bring back the sometimes raucous, mostly contentious, but never dull era we call the 60s. Ward?s fine and incisive introduction puts the discordant parts into a coherent context.? Mark Lytle, Bard College, author of America's Uncivil Wars: The Sixties Era from Elvis to the Fall of Richard Nixon ?This brilliant collage of political and cultural documents brings the 1960s back to life as presidents, activists, musicians, and social critics from the left and right offer competing visions of national purpose and American identity. An extraordinary teaching resource.? Matthew D. Lassiter, University of Michigan, author of The Silent Majority: Suburban Politics in the Sunbelt South
