Changing the World, Changing Oneself : Political Protest and Collective Identities in West Germany and the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s Paperback / softback
Edited by Belinda J. Davis, Wilfried Mausbach, Martin Klimke, C. MacDougall
Part of the Protest, Culture & Society series
A captivating time, the 60s and 70s now draw more attention than ever.
The first substantial work by historians has appeared only in the last few years, and this volume offers an important contribution.
These meticulously researched essays offer new perspectives on the Cold War and global relations in the 1960s and 70s through the perspective of the youth movements that shook the U.S., Western Europe, and beyond.
These movements led to the transformation of diplomatic relations and domestic political cultures, as well as ideas about democracy and who best understood and promoted it.
Bringing together scholars of several countries and many disciplines, this volume also uniquely features the reflections of former activists.
