Cultural Revolution--the Sixties

An 8 page research paper/essay that examines the idea of the 1960s as a cultural revolution. The 1960s are often referred as a time of cultural revolution in the United States and in other Western countries, but how useful is this term in describing this turbulent period? The connotation associated with the phrase "cultural revolution" suggests that this does not refer either political or economic considerations, as the basic structure of the nation, its economy or government were not radically altered. Rather, in this context, the phrase "cultural revolution" refers to the changes that occurred during this time in everyday life, as different groups agitated for civil and political rights (within the system) and societal mores evolved and transformed to encompass new ideas. From this understanding of what "cultural revolution" means, a look at the history of this era shows that, indeed, the term is apt and provides a concise way of referring to the societal transformations that occurred at this time.
