The 1960s were a colorful, tumultuous age that transformed American society. Ever since the decade ended, Americans have debated the changes that it unleashed. While most liberals argue that the eraa€™s eff ects were mainly positi ve and long overdue, conservati ves perceive the 1960s as a disastrous ti me that has left ruinous legacies for us. Stuck in the Sixti es analyzes conservati vesa€™ views about the 1960s era and its legacies by examining their discourse about such sixti es fi gures and movements as John F. Kennedy, Marti n Luther King, Jr., the civil-rights movement, the Warren Court, the Great Society, the Vietnam War, the anti war movement, the New Left , and the counterculture. The book reveals that, for a generati on, a focus on att acking and reversing the legacies of the 1960s has been essenti al to the conservati ve Republican agenda.60 Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, a€œThe Book on Bill, a€ American Spectator (September 1996). ... 64 Gingrich quoted in Robert Wright, a€œNewt Knows: No Stranger to the Power of Words, the Speaker Should Follow This Sensible Usera#39;s Manual, a€ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, May 1, 1995, A9. ... a€œDectera#39;s Decades: The Remarkable Writing of a Remarkable Woman, a€ Weekly Standard 7 (December 3, 2001): 36. 9 10 11anbsp;...
