The very mention of this generation-defining year summons indelible memories: Woodstock. The moon landing. Charles Manson. Easy Rider. The Miracle Mets. Joe Namath. Richard Nixon. Chappaquiddick. The Zodiac Killer. Altamont. The Days of Rage. Americans saw new boundaries pushed on screen, stage, and the printed page. The first punk and heavy metal records hit stores. Swinger culture became chic. The Santa Barbara oil slick and Cuyahoga river fire highlighted growing concerns about ecological devastation. Hamburger Hill, the bombing of Cambodia, and the breaking stories of the My Lai massacre inspired bitter debates on the Vietnam War. The nationwide Moratorium provided a unifying force in the antiwar movement, and John Lennon urged us to "Give Peace a Chance." In this rich and comprehensive narrative history, Rob Kirkpatrick chronicles the seminal events of this unparalleled year in American society, in all its explosive ups and downs. "A compelling account of the historic year." -History Channel "Kirkpatrick treats the tumultuous events of 1969 with the skills of a journalist, a historian, a sociologist, and a sportswriter...Nostalgic for some, revelatory for others, this is a worthy addition to the literature of the 1960s."-Library Journal.
