Publikation: Bog/rapportAntologiForskningpeer review


This book brings together new and original critical essays by twelve established European American Studies scholars to explore the 1960s from a transatlantic perspective. Intended for an academic audience interested in globalized American studies, this collection examines topics ranging from the impact of the American civil rights movement in Germany, France and Wales, through the transatlantic dimension of feminism, to the global nature of the counterculture movement. It explores the vicissitudes of Europe's status in US foreign relations, anti-Vietnam European documentaries, USIA broadcasts, and the role of the arts in collective and cultural memory.
