Summary
"The 1960s, a new addition to Facts On File's critically acclaimed Eyewitness History series, provides hundreds of firsthand accounts of the period - from letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts - that illustrate how important historical events appeared to those who lived through them. In addition to these firsthand accounts, each chapter provides an introductory essay and a chronology of events. The book also includes excerpts from such informative documents as the Civil Rights Acts of 1960, 1964, and 1968, President John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, President Kennedy's report about the Soviet arms buildup in Cuba, and President Nixon's address to the nation on the Vietnam War, as well as capsule biographies of more than 75 key figures, seven maps and graphs, reference notes, a bibliography, an index, and more than 85 black-and-white illustrations."--Jacket
