Synopsis

The 1960s and 1970s was a time of repression and a time of freedom, a time of ferment rarely seen before in this country. People marched-in, sat-in, loved-in. The will of the people persuaded one president not to run for reelection, forced another president to resign, and ended an iniquitous war. Social and political revolutions took place: Civil rights, women's liberation, protests against the irrelevancies of education and social norms, a counter-culture revolution on the part of young people. The keys to both protest and change were communications and education.







Dr. Robert L. Hilliard not only observed, but participated in and affected America's counter-culture revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, from the vantage point of several key federal government positions in Washington. Based on his papers and speeches from that period, with current commentary added, this is a revealing look at media and education's lost and found opportunities during that period, and what must be done so that they serve America's needs adequately in the new millennium.

ROBERT L. HILLIARD is Professor of Media Arts at Emerson College, Boston. His work, writing, and speeches in several federal government media and education positions in Washington, D.C. between 1964 and 1980 provide the bases for this book. Among his more than 20 books is Waves of Rancor: Turning in the Radical Right, with co-author Michael Keith, which was selected last year for President Clinton's annual reading list.
