Stuck in the Sixti es analyzes conservati ves’ views about the 1960sera and its legacies by examining their discourse about such sixti es fi guresand movements as John F. Kennedy, Marti n Luther King, Jr., the civil-rightsmovement, the Warren Court, the Great Society, the Vietnam War, theanti war movement, the New Left , and the counterculture.
