|a "The 1960s (a.k.a. the 60s) remains a terrain of contemporary politics - with the values of period embraced or rejected, as well as differently interpreted. Popular culture is an important means to understand, analyze the political issues, controversies surrounding the 60s - egalitarianism, equality (civil rights, feminism), as well as anti-communism. In important and key instances popular culture (especially Star Trek [1966-1969]) was at the forefront of the progressive politics of the 60s. This book engages and analyzes the ongoing 60s through popular culture. The 1960s is a pivotal period in American and world history - as the U.S. during this time turned away from white supremacy as official ideology. Also, the American public decidedly soured on U.S. military adventurism - as evidenced by broad public opposition to a military draft. Additionally, women (as a result of the feminism of the era) gained greater access to the public sphere and increased personal autonomy - non-discrimination (and anti-harassment) rules, abortion rights, no fault divorce. Popular culture is philosophically significant because it allows people to cogitate reasons in the world - especially in the social, political realm. The creators of popular culture will often seek to offer the public authentic art, and much of the public seeks out authentic art. This makes American popular culture (in its finer forms) a viable source material about reason in the world. Thus, I don't seek to deconstruct popular culture. Instead, I seek to identify, analyze the reasons in the world depicted in it"-- |c Provided by publisher.
