It began in 1960 with the Greensboro sit-ins. By 1973, when a few Native Americans rebelled at Wounded Knee and the U.S. Army came home from Vietnam, it was over.

Price: $5.00

Publisher: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR: 2/19/2014

Seller ID: 0521091039

ISBN: 0521091039

Arnold employs a delicate and stringent irony in an examination of the society of his time: a rapidly expanding industrial society, just beginning to accustom itself to the changes in its institutions that the pace of its own development c...
