HIST 4063 - America in the 1960s

CIP Code: 540101
Description: Students examine the origins, implementation, and crisis of the liberal agenda during perhaps the most contentious and divisive decade of the twentieth century. Students survey the fate of this vision in the face of internal contradictions and external challenges, including the civil rights movement and black power, the new left, the counterculture, the rebirth of feminism, the sexual revolution, and the Vietnam war. Students explore the rise of a more conservative order at decade’s end, in response to both the emerging reality of limited national power and wealth, and rising demands for rights and opportunities.
