The Sixties: Primary Documents and Personal Narratives 1960?1974 brings the 1960s alive through diaries, letters, autobiographies and other memoirs, written and oral histories, manifestos, government documents, memorabilia, and scholarly commentary.
The Sixties is centered on key themes that provide insight into the issues that shaped America and that still resonate in today?s debates: Arts, Music, and Leisure; Civil Rights; Counter-Culture; Environmental Movement; Gay and Lesbian Rights; Law and Government; Mass Media; New Left and Emerging Neo-Conservative Movement; Science and Technology; Student Activism; Vietnam War; and Women?s Movement.
When complete, the collection will contain over 150,000 pages of fully searchable text and associated audio and video material. These materials are frequently rare and hard to find; they include diaries, letters, and oral and written histories from both newsmakers and ordinary citizens caught up in the times; government documents, hearings, and other official papers; and papers and histories from radical and other organizations and groups; plus songs, photographs, ephemera, and more. To supplement the primary material and to facilitate the teaching of research using primary sources at the university level, The Sixties at completion also includes a collection of critical documentary essays. Compiled by leading scholars in the field and assembled around a major theme or research question, each critical documentary essay consists of annotated primary-source documents, linked by an original interpretive essay that provides historical context and insight into the sources.
