any1 know any goood books on this, by any chance?
and my historian girlfriend is asleep in next room so can't check her bookcase.
filmwise you should watch the recent documentary on The Weather Underground:
I can still not help you:( Maybe I read the Great Gatsby though that could of been for a different part of American history.
I really am useless. Good book though.
are you going for? white campus counterculture or more widespread? from the black pov the autobio of malcolm x is a fantastic source to use.
as for white campus stuff, a good way to look at it is from films. thus you have stuff like alice's restaurant, easy rider. a good guide to this movement is Biskind's Easy Riders, Raging Bulls.
musically you could mention CSNY's Ohio in regards to the kent state massacre.
tim leary is good to read re: drugs.
there's so much stuff you're really spoilt for choice. try wikipedia and you're bound to find links to tons of stuff to look into further.
history a level and i need some decent sources on it by the end of the week. if people give me some useful books i can look em up and get a general gist of the stuff. i think i need books on the vietnam confilct but that should be a piece of piss.
Just spend the week listening that on repeat.
Whether or not this will be advantageous in terms of completing your History project is questionable.
SDS: Ten Years Towards a Revolution
by Kirkpatrick Sale.
really good and indepth. about 800 pages?
what i would do is:
how much effect did the counter culture have on normal society
how much effect did this have on the government
with reference to clear anti war protest
i'm on a roll now. one interesting thing to look at is
recommended looks great, cheers:)
sorry post messed up....
is the way that musicians tried to fight against the counterculture musicians like dylan...
thus you have:
a total dylan ripoff with awful patriotic lyrics
in reaction to the byrds eve of destruction:
'The western world has a common dedication
To keep free people from Red domination
And maybe you can't vote, boy, but man your battle stations
Or there'll be no need for votin' in future generations
So over and over again, you keep sayin' it's the end
But I say you're wrong, we're just on the dawn of correction '
lovely. this sort of thing is interesting and can def spice up an otherwise boring essay.
