In the midst of a great deal of misguided and inaccurate rhetoric about the sixties, the author rather understandably wishes to set the record straight in this book, and he does. This book of slightly more than pages is divided into thirteen chapters that explore the seedy as well as wholesome and conservative aspects of the sixties that are often not given full coverage by those who write about the decade.
The author begins with four chapters about the social sixties I , including some pointed comments about student activists 1 , the advent and legacy of feminism 2 , the ambiguities of the civil rights movement 3 , and some rather harsh comments about the intellectuals of the time 4.

It is hard, ultimately, to fully approve of a book like this. The author, for example, appears to desire a big tent coalition of conservatives that includes cultural conservatives as well as more libertarian elements like Ayn Rand, whose views I am quite critical of because of their unabashed selfishness and lack of charity towards others. Likewise, the author is a bit too strident in his anti-intellectualism, although he definitely does a good job at providing some much needed balance and context to what happened in the sixties as well as some much needed criticism of the links between so much of sixties counterculture with Communist attempts at bringing down the United States through decadence and fifth columnists in academia and the media, something that remains a critical area of problems for the United States to this day.
