Praise

Wall Street Journal
"A powerful, surprising argument, never explicitly stated but implicitly clear, holding that the rebellions against the established order--which took their form in the civil-rights movement, the youth movement, the early stirrings of the women's movement and the middle class's changing self-definition through the 1960s--were inextricably linked." - David M. Shribman 01/16/1998

Washington Post Book World
"Branch spins an intricate, seamless web of politics and personalities, ambition and imagination, triumph and tragedy." - Jeff Shesol 01/25/1998

Tikkun
"...[A] monumental historical resource..." May/June, 1998
