Judy Kutulas's After Aquarius Dawned: How the Revolutions of the Sixties PDF

By Judy Kutulas

during this e-book, Judy Kutulas complicates the typical view that the Nineteen Seventies have been a time of counterrevolution opposed to the novel actions and attitudes of the former decade. as a substitute, Kutulas argues that the reports and attitudes that have been radical within the Sixties have been turning into a part of mainstream tradition within the Seventies, as sexual freedom, gender equality, and extra complicated notions of id, paintings, and relatives have been normalized via renowned culture--television, video clips, track, political motives, and the emergence of recent groups. doubtless mundane such things as observing The Mary Tyler Moore Show, hearing Carole King songs, wearing Birkenstock sandals, or analyzing Roots have been really serious in shaping american citizens' perceptions of themselves, their households, and their relation to authority.

Even as those cultural shifts ultimately gave method to a backlash of political and fiscal conservatism, Kutulas indicates that what critics understand because the narcissism of the Seventies was once truly the following logical step in an extended strategy of assimilating Nineteen Sixties values like individuality and variety into daily life. Exploring such concerns as feminism, sexuality, and race, Kutulas demonstrates how pop culture helped many american citizens make feel of key modifications in U.S. economics, society, politics, and tradition within the overdue 20th century.
