Berkeley at War

The 1960s

W.J. Rorabaugh

In this meticulously researched, authoritative volume, W.J. Rorabaugh presents a lively, informative account of the events of the 1960s that changed forever the once quiet, conservative white suburb of Berkeley, California. He covers the entire period, from the rise of the Free Speech Movement to the growth and increasing militance of a black community struggling to end segregation; from the emergence of radicalism and the anti-war movement to the blossoming "hippie" culture; and from the explosive conflict over People's Park to the beginnings of modern-day feminism and environmentalism.
