The Routledge Handbook of the Global Sixties

Between Protest and NationBuilding



This book globalizes the study of the 1960s better than any other publication. The authors stretch the standard narrative to include regions and actors long neglected. This new geography of the 1960s changes how we understand the broader transformations surrounding protest, war, race, feminism, and other themes. The global 1960s described by the authors is more inclusive and relevant for our current day. This book will influence all future research and teaching about the postwar world.


This important and wide-ranging volume de-centers West-focused histories of the 1960s. - John Chalcraft
