Gathers the observations of individuals who were students and activists during this period

Newly revised and updated and with an expanded introduction, From Camelot to Kent State tells the story of ten of the most dramatic years in the life of America - and of fifty-nine men and women who lived through those years. In their own words, civil rights activists, soldiers who fought in Vietnam, anti-war protesters, student radicals, feminists, Peace Corps workers, and many others take us inside the major events and movements of the period. Far from a dispassionate history of the Sixties, these stories bristle with the tension and immediacy of lived experience. How did it feel to step out of a helicopter into a Vietnamese jungle, to ride south on a freedom bus, to march on the Pentagon, to hear Jimi Hendrix play the national anthem at Woodstock, to attend the first consciousness-raising meetings for women at the Bread and Roses Cafe? This captivating oral history will let you know.
