Reframing 1968 : American Politics, Protest and Identity Paperback / softback
Edited by Martin Halliwell, Nick Witham
The assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr and Robert Kennedy; gay rights, women's rights and civil rights; the Black Panthers and the Vietnam War; the New Left and the New Right: 1968 was a tumultuous year for US politics. 50 years on, 'Reframing 1968' explores the historical, political and social legacy of 1968 in modern protest movements.
The contributors look at how protest has changed in the US, from Students for a Democratic Society and the Civil Rights Movement in the late 1960s, to the Women's Movement in the 1970s, through to the contemporary visibility of the Tea Party and the Occupy movement.
