Counterculture, while commonly used to describe youth-oriented movements during the 1960s, refers to any attempt to challenge or change conventional values and practices or the dominant lifestyles of the day. This fascinating three-volume set explores these movements in America from colonial times to the present in colorful detail. "American Countercultures" is the first reference work to examine the impact of countercultural movements on American social history. 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. The set includes numerous illustrations, a topic finder, primary source documents, a bibliography and a filmography, and an index.

"...offers readers a unique reference that pulls together disparate elements of our historic nonconformity. By doing so it helps provide clarity and definition to just how deeply countercultures are woven into the American fabric. In addition, it is one of those references that, while being useful and fact filled, is also fascinating to read and fun to browse....this reference is well suited to general audiences and public libraries will want to consider it along with undergraduate libraries. This encyclopedia is a strong compliment to another M.E. Sharpe reference the Encyclopedia of American Social Movements. Against the Grain...a catalog of American idealism that will be not only informative to students seeking research material but also inspirational to those who feel left out. School Library Journal This very well-written, well-constructed reference source addresses an aspect of American history that is often overlooked. The three volumes include close to 600 entries written in a scholarly yet very accessible style. The set's definition of counterculture is refreshingly generous, including people and movements in religion, fashion, music, politics, art, literature, and popular culture. Also refreshing is the breadth of history covered, acknowledging the existence of counterculture movements outside the 1960s. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers. Choice"
