The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture

A newer generation of scholarship grapples with the legacy of the 1960s

Across the globe, no era in the twentieth century has been as celebrated, contested, and scrutinized as the 1960s. And as we are frequently reminded - in a seemingly endless parade of books, articles, films, television programs and special editions of magazines - that decade continues to illuminate our present era. Now, forty years after the many of the main events of 1960s, Routledge is delighted to announce the publication of a new journal that is devoted to grappling with that era's complicated legacy.

The Sixties is edited by Jeremy Varon (Drew University), Michael S. Foley (CUNY) and John McMillian (Harvard University), and is supported by a distinguished international Editorial Board.

"The Sixties is the first scholarly journal devoted to the study of a single decade," remarked McMillian. "In the last decade or so, a huge amount of writing has been devoted to understanding that remarkable era; now this journal will become a premiere outlet for the sharpest, most exciting work in the field."

Varon added that although The Sixties is an academic journal, it is geared toward a broader audience than just scholars. "All across the world, people remain fascinated by the 1960s," he said. "So we're creating a journal that will be interesting to baby boomers, sixties-veterans, and contemporary activists as well as writers and teachers."

"From the very beginning, we've always said we want a journal that is intellectually serious, but which also reflects the spirit and passion of the times," said Foley. "We're excited to build a rich and diverse community around The Sixties."

Free online access to The Sixties is available to members of the press. Contact mark.robinson@tandf.co.uk for more details.

The Sixties will be published twice a year in print and online (Print ISSN: 1754-1328; Online ISSN: 1754-1336). Volume 1 Issue 1 is available online now.

Routledge is part of the Taylor & Francis Group and is the imprint for all its journals and books in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
