Politically Incorrect Guide To The Sixties hits bookstores on Monday, August 10, 2009.
It’s a lively, funny book which has gotten raves from a number of very eminent writers. For instance:
“Jonathan Leaf almost makes the ’60s worth it in this merciless debunking of our decade of shame. Fun, informed – and, above all – valuable.”
Rich Lowry, Editor-in-Chief, National Review
“Has any decade been more mythologized than the 1960’s? I doubt it. Read Jonathan Leaf, who corrects and debunks the conventional wisdom–and who also teaches us interesting and important things about that time, and ours.”William Kristol, Editor-in-Chief, The Weekly Standard
“‘I believe in yesterday’, sang the Beatles. But do you remember it? Jonathan Leaf gives a droll and provocative account of the myths–often self-serving–that have grown up around the sixties like weeds, and clears them away.”Richard Brookhiser, author of Right Time Right Place: Coming of Age with William F. Buckley Jr. and the Conservative Movement
