Bob Talks About the Fun Part of the Sixties! (and the Right-Wing Backlash to It)

The latest U.S. history lecture from Green and Red Podcast co-host, and University of Houston history professor, Bob Buzzanco.

He starts with the fun part, the Counterculture, which includes protest music; Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll; the riots at Stonewall and gay liberation; plus the real counterculture stuff like LSD,  Age of Aquarius and Woodstock.

And then gets into the right wing backlash: that includes Nixon and Law and Order, the southern strategy. The New Right. Nixon and Detente and Vietnamization.

And of course, Nixon’s crash with Watergate.
