The Eve of Destruction: How 1965 Transformed America

’57. Basic Books, 2012. An argument that 1965 was the true nexus between two wildly different American epochs, between an era of boundless optimism and one of uncertainty, instability and chaos. A historian, Patterson charts the political and cultural idealism at the beginning of the decade in contrast to the later unraveling of American unity. He writes of the turmoil that erupted in the American South and overseas in Vietnam during the spring of 1965.
