The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture
No recent decade has been so powerfully transformative in the United States and much of the world as the 1960s. The era's social movements - from civil rights, to feminism, student and youth protest, environmentalism, and nascent conservativism - dramatically changed the political culture of the developed west. Meanwhile, the decade's decolonization struggles altered the nature and balance of global power. In Communist Europe, incipient democracy movements set the stage for the revolutions that ended the Cold War. Collectively, these movements gave the 1960s their signal identity, and dominate understandings of their historical legacy.
Whether in the United States, or across the globe, no recent decade has had such an enduring grip on politics, culture, and consciousness as the 1960s.
The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture, features cross-disciplinary, accessible and cutting-edge scholarship from academics and public intellectuals. In addition to research essays and book reviews, The Sixties includes conversations, interviews, graphics, and analyses of the ways the 1960s continue to be constructed in contemporary popular culture.
