During the sixties, America passed from a culture of work, sacrifice and savings to a culture of consumption, immediate gratification and youthful hedonism. "Do not trust anyone over thirty" and "burn baby burn" were the new watchwords.
Join us as we discuss the events, personalities and conflicts of the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon years. We will especially examine how all the forces dividing America converged on the 1968 presidential election
and Nixon's promise to "Bring us Together."
Read Joe McGinniss “The Sellingof the President 1968”.
This book wrote the script for modern presidential politicking.
