The book is long, as it needs to be, but it is beautifully written. The style is paratactic and additive, breathlessly listing events, names, issues, lifestyles, successes and ravages. A number of sociologists write well, but few as well as Gitlin. He is also a novelist. Crime readers who have not read his novel, The Murder of Albert Einstein, have missed a work of great skill. The overall presentation of the book was informative and interesting. The author seemed to almost trip over himself in explains some of the major/minor influences of the 60s decade. After a while it became a bit tedious.

Early in the book, Schultz outlines these dominant assumptions: a belief that progress could be achieved . Schultz positions Buckley and Mailer both as somewhat knightly figures doing battle on the stage of the American theatre.

Adams sent a copy of the book to the National Park Service and Harold L. Ickes, Secretary of the Interior. Adams was committed throughout his professional life to the promotion of photography as a fine art. Ickes duly forwarded the book to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was so moved by Adams's photographs of the canyon he signed legislation allowing for the creation of Kings Canyon National Park in 1940.

Talk about Art of the sixties


Hystana
The 1960s was a decade of significant cultural shift. It marked the rise of unorthodox forms of expression and a huge increase in the written word about art. The book deals almost exclusively with British and American developments since the art of the sixties was overwhelmingly shaped by London and New York.
Adams' illuminating text explores the decade's art from many angles and with reference to commentators like Tom Wolfe, Alvin Toffler, Daniel Buren, Harold Rosenberg, Dwight Macdonald, Peter Fuller, Frank Popper and others. Forms and labels like Neo Dada, Op, Pop, Kinetic, Minimalist and Kinetic are investigated with a critical eye.
The 60s was certainly an exciting decade that produced enduring art by among others Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Richard Hamilton, Claes Oldenburg and Peter Blake. The best of their work is represented here in a wealth of full colour and black and white reproductions.
My favourite images include Screamin J Hawkins by Karl Wirsum, Marilyn Monroe 1967 by Warhol, Perfect Match by Allen Jones, after The Monarch Of The Glen by Peter Blake, Takka Takka by Roy Lichtenstein, Bus Window by Richard Estes, The Miller Blues Band by Victor Moscoso and Hippopotamus by Mel Ramos.
Art Of The Sixties is an illuminating read that captures the flavour of the decade very well. I am sure there are more exhaustive books on the subject but this one does a good job of dealing with the essentials. The informative text is enhanced by 66 illustrations of which 26 are in colour.

There are quite many good and judiciously selected illustrations, some not seen elsewhere, but the text is a major disappointment. Adams is representative of the general anti-1960s backlash of the 1970s, writing as if the fact that the political and social achievements of the 1960s did not last for long somehow made the art of the period equally ephemeral in the long run.
