Senator John F. Kennedy's 1960 presidential victory signaled a time of renewed hope and opportunity amid a bleak landscape of international tension. Within a few short years, however, Americans would find themselves coping with his untimely death, and fiercely divided over America's role in growing battles, both at home and abroad. A decade that many hoped would bring peace and prosperity began to morph into one of the most complex reactionary periods in history, with popular culture shifting and subverting the status quo in ways that would forever influence fashion, modern thought, philosophy, politics, and art. This volume focuses on the background, history, and effects of the American counterculture of the 1960s and features insights into public documents such as diaries, public records, and contemporary chronicles of the era.
