For those who lived through it, the 1960s was a bewildering era, alternately exhilarating and heartbreaking; for those born later, it is difficult to comprehend in its totality. Illustrated throughout with photographs, this year-by-year look at the decade is built around a timeline of 100 key events driven by people, technology, politics, societal change, and popular culture. Encompassed here are figures like Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and the Beatles, and events like the civil rights movement, the rise of the Hippie counterculture, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the establishment of the Peace Corps, the Vietnam War, the development of the birth control pill, Woodstock, and the 1969 moon landing.
