The Routledge Global 1960s and 1970s Series


About the Series

As the decades that defined the Cold War, the 1960s and 1970s helped shape the world we live in to a remarkable degree. Political phenomena including the almighty tussle between capitalism and communism, the Arab-Israeli conflict, apartheid in South Africa, uprisings against authoritarianism and independence from colonial rule for a large swathe of the nations of the Global South helped define the period but the sixties and seventies were as much about cultural and social change, with lives the world over altered irretrievably by new standpoints and attitudes. Traditionally, analysis of the era has largely been concerned with superpower posturings and life in Europe and America, but this series, while providing full coverage to such impulses, takes a properly global view of the era.
