"A work of considerable power, energetically expounded and engagingly written. Matusow is capable of capturing a man in one sentence and of sustaining a narrative over many pages. . . . And in tracing out the many threads that went into making the counterculture, he composes a chapter that is a tour de force."
—William E. Leuchtenburg, Atlantic
"Matusow offers a superb look at the people who propelled the liberal era. . . . The narration is enormously readable."
"Deeply researched and clearly written, this work should figure as a standard study of a watershed movement in American public life for some time to come."
"A thorough, basic general history of the 1960s that includes clear descriptions of all political and social matters. . . . Allen Matusow has accomplished the impossible—he has made sense out of the often senseless '60s."
—Lee Milazzo, Dallas Morning News
"This may well be the definitive analysis of the political, economic, and social factors that came together with such explosive force in the 1960s."
—Bill Youngblood, Forth Worth Star-Telegram
"The best history of the decade we have to date."
—Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World
