The 1960's were a time of political and ideological change for the United States. This era was marked by the Vietnam War, Political Protest, the space race, and the Cold War. This collection of speeches chronicles how these events shaped US foreign and domestic policy, examines the purpose of the counterculture movement, and shows the struggle for equality and civil rights.
"This collection brings together speeches by some of the most distinguished political leaders of the twentieth century together with political analysis. Each speech is introduced by a brief historical and political discussion, and a general introduction gives a helpful overview and precise historical context. The combination of the original speeches and the present day analysis provides a fine starting point for reports and class discussion."
