THE SHATTERING America in the 1960s

by | Read by Jonathan Yen

History • 18.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Jonathan Yen once more proves his skill as a nonfiction narrator. In his signature storyteller's style--notable for its careful cadence and resolute tone--he allows this thorough and thought-provoking reconsideration of America in the tumultuous decade of the 1960s to unfold deliberately. This monumental history is organized around three topics: the Civil Rights movement, the Sexual Revolution, and the military. A National Book Award winner, author Boyle is especially good on the origin stories--events involving Truman and Eisenhower, for example--that underlie the later era's transformations. From redlining to free speech, from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the escalation in Vietnam, all will fascinate the most avid '60s buff.
