Everywhere the 1960s are being examined, researched, studied and debated. Universities hold major international conferences on this amazing decade bringing together scholars, teachers and veteran activists and those now involved in the world-wide alternative to the globalization movement. The sheer volume of books, articles and periodicals dealing with this decade in any number of countries is staggering.
Very little has been published about the sixties in Canada, however. The Sixties in Canada is an extraordinary anthology meant to close this gap. The essays published in this volume reflect the minefield of research material that has been brought together from a rich reservoir of sources, heretofore little known.
Every possible dimension of the 1960s is analyzed, always assessing the impact of this energy on Canadian society and the pace of this flow of exciting ideas, militant movements and radically outspoken people on the world. The sweeping range of subjects cover: the politics of law and order, youth and the culture of discontent, Black Power, local organizing and the grassroots, music and literature, environmental consciousness, the sixties and the State, the politics of university democracy, sexual liberation, nationalism and radicalism, decolonization, Red Power and culture, feminism and revolution, and "all power to the imagination."
The writers are researchers and scholars as well as concerned persons who are close to the subject-matter in many ways. Among these exceptional essayists are included: Bryan Palmer, Jonathan Thompson, Anne Hoefnagels, Pat Smart, Sean Mills, Gillian Helfield, Myrna Kostash, John Cleveland, Paul Jackson, Carrie Dickenson, Eric Morton, Barbara Goddard, Laurence Davis, Kristin Ireland, Chris Harris, Kevin Brushett and Dimitrios Roussopoulos.
M. Athena Palaeologu is a researcher on the sixties internationally, with a particular interest in Canada. She has participated actively in the international meetings of the European Social Forum and in all the meetings of the World Social Forum and holds a PhD in cultural studies.
