About

Overview

The term "counterculture" refers to any intentional departure from conventional values and practices or the dominant lifestyles of the day. This is the first reference work to examine the impact of countercultural movements on American social history, from colonial times to the present. American Countercultures is a useful supplement throughout the U.S. History curriculum. It highlights the writings, recordings, and visual works produced by these movements to educate, inspire, and incite action in all eras of the nation's history. A–Z entries provide a wealth of information on personalities, places, events, concepts, beliefs, groups, and practices.
