If you'd like to read the Ultimate Book on the 1960's (or merely refresh the memory circuits in your chromosome damaged noggin) buy America, a History in Verse, Volume 3, (1962-70)

This is an excellent reference work on the 1960's. Teachers and Professors: why not add America 3 or America 1/2/3 to your course curricula?
