Woodstock has become the symbol of a decade of free love, but in The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Sixties author Jonathan Leaf rejects the idea that the era fostered radical change in all society. This book tells how radical factions took over movements such as civil rights and feminism and replaced their ideas with more extreme methods and ideas--and it tells of a decade dominated by cultural conservatism and family values, instead. An excellent alternative viewpoint.
