REVIEWED BY CAROLINE LEAVITT

NONFICTION

Brokaw's verbal scrapbook of the Sixties explores what the times meant to musicians, civil rights leaders, activists and more. Filled with before-and-after shots of Sixties survivors, the book doesn't offer much new perspective, but it does show that the era's core issues–racism, women's rights, a nation-dividing war–remain central today, and that the values boomers championed haven't yet gone bust.
