Product Details


“Whether your interest in the ‘¬´60s is academic, nostalgic or merely curious, this A-Z compendium is a groovy way to re-examine the many wonderful, way-out colors of the decade’¬?s cultural kaleidoscope.”-American Profile online “Our Pick” “This is much more than a groovy (p. 223) dictionary. It is a time capsule and a travel guide (see “trip” on p. 533) plus a social and political history of an era whose influence is pervasive and ongoing.” -Wes Nisker, author of The Essential Crazy Wisdom”Provides information and insight into an explosive era that-underlying the sex, drugs, and rock ‘¬?n’¬? roll-was a sense of community, a spiritual revolution, and an evolutionary jump in consciousness.” -Paul Krassner, author of Murder at the Conspiracy Convention and Other American Absurdities”A unique and valuable sourcebook about all of the diverse projects, probes, movements, and moments that made the ‘¬?60s a key turning point in our history and culture.” -Richard Flacks, Ph.D., author of Beyond the Barricades: The Liberated Generation Grows Up”This book is irresistible. . . . It perfectly catches the fusion of beat generation slang, the lingo of jazz musicians . . . and the ghetto patter that resulted in a new dialect that most people now don’¬?t even recognize-so deeply has it seeped into the whole culture, spoken as often on Wall Street as the Berkeley campus.” -Joe Bob Briggs, syndicated columnist
