Are the cultural upheavals of the 1960s nothing more than a media myth, recycled as endless nostalgia? Woodstock, the Summer of Love, student protests, the debacle that was the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago evoke a period of material prosperity, cultural innovation, and youthful rebellion. But how far did the radical aspirations and utopian ideals really go? And what is the legacy of the social, political, and cultural transformations which characterized the decade? In an interdisciplinary collection of specially commissioned essays,Cultural Revolution?uncovers the complex economic and political contexts in which these changes took place. Covering a wide variety of art forms--drama, television, music, film, poetry, literature, and the visual arts--the contributors investigate how the culture of the 1960s became politicized, and how its inherent contradictions still have repercussions for the arts today. Cultural Revolution?will be animportant resource for students and teachers involved in cultural studies, and media and communication studies.
