Ever since the decade ended, Americans have debated the changesthat it unleashed. While most liberals argue that the eras eff ects were mainlypositi ve and long overdue, conservati ves perceive the 1960s as a disastrousti me that has left ruinous legacies for us.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. The book revealsthat, for a generati on, a focus on att acking and reversing the legacies of the1960s has been essenti al to the conservati ve Republican agenda.
