Description
In this follow-up to The Greatest Generation, Tom Brokaw offers an epic, multifaceted portrait of another defining era in America: the 1960s. Through the voices and stories of nearly 100 Americans, both famous and unknown, Brokaw conducts what he calls a "virtual reunion," revealing how individuals and the greater society were affected over the years by encounters in the 60s with Vietnam, politics, race relations and civil rights, feminism, drug culture, music, and other controversies. The book includes a DVD with a 24-minute excerpt from Brokaw's History Channel documentary 1968 with Tom Brokaw.

"[Tom Brokaw] approaches this magnum opus with warmth, curiosity and conviction, the same attributes that worked so well for his Greatest Generation."NYTimes
