Make Love, Not War is the first full-scale history of how the Sexual Revolution changed life in America forever. A fascinating and frank portrait of private lives and public discourse, it traces changes from the deceptively repressive Fifties, to the first tremors of rebellion in the early Sixties and the sexual rights movement of the mid Sixties, to the heady heyday of the Revolution (1969-73), and the counterrevolution in the early Seventies.
