Professor Strain Publishes Book Focused on the 1960s in America Richard Gordon
Christopher Strain, Ph.D., professor of history for FAU’s Wilkes Honors College, recently published a book titled The Long Sixties: America, 1955-1973 (New York: Wiley-Blackwell, 2016). He examines the 1960s, “a turbulent time of great change and confusion, marked by a profound shift in values and punctuated by a profane and often ugly war. For some Americans it was a time of great liberation and freedom. For others it was the time during which the United States lost its way,” writes Strain. He provides an overview for readers to develop a deeper understanding of the many changes that took place in American life during this important decade.
