Product description

Review

'A page-turner...an eye-opener...a remedy against sloppy nostalgia.' -- Times Literary Supplement

'DeGroot does an impressive job of boiling down complex events, from the Vietnam War to China's Cultural Revolution.'
-- Metro

'His cool, clipped sentences disentangle fact from myth. Refreshing' -- Scotland on Sunday

'It is refreshing to read [a book] that takes a mercifully clear-sighted view of the decade.' -- Literary Review

'It's an argument that baby boomers may find hard to swallow but, such is DeGroot's erudition and analytic precision.'
-- Choice

'The 60s Unplugged is a fabulous history of the decade that lacks the usual nostalgia.' -- The Bookseller

'This is a really important book to put perspective on such a formative decade and remove some of the romance.' -- Bookseller

'[a] highly entertaining and accomplished survey...' -- Oxford Times

`An engagingly languid, world-weary style and some fascinating insights . . . There are many good things in this book.'
-- Guardian

Book Description

A vividly readable, powerfully argued revisionist history of the 1960s
