Summary:
This grassroots view of student activism in the 1960's chronicles the years of protest at one midwestern university. Located in a region of farmland, conservative politics, and traditional family values, Indiana University was home to the antiwar protesters, civil rights activists, members of the counterculture, and feminists who helped change the heart of Middle America. Based on primary sources, interviews, and FBI files, this volume reveals the midwestern pulse of the '60's, beating firmly, far from the elite schools and urban centers of the east and west.
