The Spiritual Meaning of the Sixties - Tobias Churton
An engaging romp through one of the most tumultuous decades of the 20th century is given by Churton in this book, which takes in the free love movement, civil rights agitation, the rise of feminism, gay rights and the anti-war movement. The book also considers the psychedelic revolution, the rise of interest in UFOs, and the shifts in consciousness occasioned in the music, movies, and literature of the era - from I Love Lucy to Star Trek, from Frank Sinatra to The Beatles. With influences as wide ranging as medieval troubadors to the works of Aleister Crowley, and covering everything from crew cuts to the Kennedy assasination, it is a lively whirlwind tour across the sixties, and an examination of the lasting spiritual influence of that period of time.
