'The Sixties-a decade of upheaval and change for the generation of Canadians who had grown up amidst the comfort, security and political complacency of the Fifties. Everything in their world was held up for questioning and a new way of life evolved, with its own language, music, ideas and values: flower power, love-ins, drugs, anti-war demonstrations and a built-in suspicion of anyone over thirty....The politics and lifestyles of the Sixties generation seemed to present a direct threat to bureaucrats, politicians and parents. The 'establishment' was under siege; new kinds of relationships evolved, as did new ways of dealing with a world felt to be in desperate need of change. ' Illustrated. 300 pages.
