Publisher's Description

"The new book is a monograph of my earliest photos from 1969 to 1974 documenting the social landscape of America as it roiled with upheaval. I began as a participant in the youth movement and then became an observer of the entire spectrum of the cultural and political wars in America. I criss-crossed the country with youthful passion and a yearning to explain his country to myself, asking, 'What’s going on?' I was 18 years old.

Along the way, my photos documented people across race, class and political lines. The resulting portrait is more than a flashback. I think It is a unique and important historical record that counteracts the truncated memory of the sixties that has been inserted into our psyche by both editorial and commercial media. Like a pavlovian response, the sixties conjures up images of young people smoking pot, dancing high on LSD to rock music in the park. In fact, those years weren’t like that at all for much of America." — Ken Light
