Entries describe the decade's events, musical groups and performers, authors, political groups, movies, and literature, each assessing the topic's impact and tracing subsequent events.

Book News
Arranged in encyclopedic form, this three-volume set divides its coverage like the evening news: for every hard-edged article about the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, or advances in science and technology, there is a light-hearted piece on hairstyles, or a musician, or a popular film or television show. The 554 entries range from 250-word articles on subjects such as Olympic track star Billy Mills to 3,000-word surveys of topics such as the Cold War. B&w photos remind the reader of events such as the moon landing and the Charles Manson murders; leaders such as Martin Luther King, CTsar Chßvez, and George McGovern; movies like Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and Easy Rider ; and organizations and movements such as the NAACP, the environmental and feminist movements, and the Peace Corp. For students and general readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
