Author: Bailey, Beth
Published: Harvard University Press, 1999.
In the 1960s American society and political institutions experienced fundamental changes. In contrast to general studies or local studies that focus on such places as Berkeley, San Francisco, or Greenwich Village, Beth Bailey examines how life and behavior in Lawrence, Kansas was transformed by the sixties. The author examines the social and cultural life of Lawrence, Kansas and argues that the social changes and sexual revolution that reshaped American life are more complicated than is generally believed. This is an essential book for those wishing to understand the roots of contemporary American society.
