The Shattering: America in the 1960s

An Online Lecture and Q&A with Kevin Boyle


W. W. Norton is pleased to offer a special virtual lecture and Q & A with award-winning historian Kevin Boyle. His book The Shattering is a masterful history of the decade whose conflicts shattered America’s postwar order and divide us still. In this 30-minute lecture, Boyle uses the stories of four ordinary Americans to explore the extraordinary upheavals of the 1960s: a history of deep division and sweeping change, told on an intimate scale.
