Booklist Review

[SERIES LAST REVIEWED IN BKL Mr 1 94, under The American Frontier. Gr. 9^-12.]


School Library Journal Review

Gr 10 Up‘Like the other titles in this series, each chapter includes scholarly articles that espouse opposing viewpoints. Among the authors are John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Barry Goldwater, J. William Fulbright, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Several good essays on the student movement on college campuses will attract general readers and report writers as will the discussions of social unrest and the civil rights movement. The book presents the 1960s as an important, turbulent era in American history. Commentary on Woodstock by Margaret Mead proves to be interesting reading. The final chapters deal with historical discussions on the activists of the `60s and whether they were idealists or merely elitists. A good complement to James Haskins's The Sixties Reader (Viking, 1988; o.p.).‘Judy R. Johnston, Auburn High School, WA (c) Copyright 2010.
