Ariel Leve and Robin Morgan's oral history 1963: The Year of the Revolution is the first book to recount the kinetic story of the twelve months that witnessed a demographic power shift—the rise of the Youth Quake movement, a cultural transformation through music, fashion, politics, and the arts. Leve and Morgan detail how, for the first time in history, youth became a commercial and cultural force with the power to command the attention of government and religion and shape society. While the Cold War began to thaw, the race into space heated up, feminism and civil rights percolated in politics, and JFK’s assassination shocked the world, the Beatles and Bob Dylan would emerge as poster boys and the prophet of a revolution that changed the world. 1963: The Year of the Revolution records, documentary-style, the incredible roller-coaster ride of those twelve months, told through the recollections of some of the period’s most influential figures—from Keith Richards to Mary Quant, Vidal Sassoon to Graham Nash, Alan Parker to Peter Frampton, Eric Clapton to Gay Talese, Stevie Nicks to Norma Kamali, and many more.

Jacques Yonnet racconta con una poesia sottile e ironica il vero ventre parigino attraverso i suoi aspetti più insoliti: storie sorprendenti e sospese, probabilmente romanzate ma su cui tuttora c’è chi è pronto a giurare, racconti senza tempo che si incrociano con i rumori e le paure di una città violata da uno straniero odiato e barbaro; di fronte all’occupante nazista Parigi si chiude a riccio e sembra voler meditare sulla propria storia, raccontandola al cronista sensibile come un grandioso atto di scongiuro. Rue des Maléfices è un libro aspro, denso, pervaso da un’atmosfera unica e originalissima che pare volersi mimetizzare con le pietre, le strade, le “piazze della città, raccontandole con una propensione al fantastico e al grottesco che è la cifra inimitabile dello stile di Yonnet. Pubblicato nel 1954 a Parigi, divenne immediatamente un libro di culto, tanto da dare origine a un autentico filone letterario e a molte imitazioni; torna finalmente in libreria nella traduzione brillante e completamente riveduta di Guido Lagomarsino, accompagnata da un ricco apparato di note e dalle splendide foto di Robert Doisneau, amico dell’autore e compagno di scorribande e perlustrazioni nei bistrot e per le strade di una Parigi oggi quasi scomparsa. Il libro che Raymond Queneau considerava la cosa più importante mai scritta su Parigi.

Lo scopo di questo libro è di dar conto di una quantità di nuovi interessi, sia culturali che esistenziali, della generazione che si trovò a compiere vent’anni durante gli anni Sessanta, e di mostrare come tali interessi fecero diventare inadeguato il modo in cui fino a quel momento la popular music, cioè l’espressione musicale delle culture popolari urbane, aveva concepito e costruito il suo modo di esprimersi attraverso le canzoni. È la “rivoluzione” (qualcosa che gira, 'revolving') di una generazione attorno a questi nuovi interessi a scatenare una rivoluzione delle sue forme espressive.

A year in Paris . . . since World War II, countless American students have been lured by that vision—and been transformed by their sojourn in the City of Light. Dreaming in French tells three stories of that experience, and how it changed the lives of three extraordinary American women. All three women would go on to become icons, key figures in American cultural, intellectual, and political life, but when they embarked for France, they were young, little-known, uncertain about their future, and drawn to the culture, sophistication, and drama that only Paris could offer. Yet their backgrounds and their dreams couldn’t have been more different. Jacqueline Bouvier was a twenty-year-old debutante, a Catholic girl from a wealthy East Coast family. Susan Sontag was twenty-four, a precocious Jewish intellectual from a North Hollywood family of modest means, and Paris was a refuge from motherhood, a failing marriage, and graduate work in philosophy at Oxford. Angela Davis, a French major at Brandeis from a prominent African American family in Birmingham, Alabama, found herself the only black student in her year abroad program—in a summer when all the news from Birmingham was of unprecedented racial violence. Kaplan takes readers into the lives, hopes, and ambitions of these young women, tracing their paths to Paris and tracking the discoveries, intellectual adventures, friendships, and loves that they found there. For all three women, France was far from a passing fancy; rather, Kaplan shows, the year abroad continued to influence them, a significant part of their intellectual and cultural makeup, for the rest of their lives. Jackie Kennedy carried her love of France to the White House and to her later career as a book editor, bringing her cultural and linguistic fluency to everything from art and diplomacy to fashion and historic restoration—to the extent that many, including Jackie herself, worried that she might seem “too French.” Sontag found in France a model for the life of the mind that she was determined to lead; the intellectual world she observed from afar during that first year in Paris inspired her most important work and remained a key influence—to be grappled with, explored, and transcended—the rest of her life. Davis, meanwhile, found that her Parisian vantage strengthened her sense of political exile from racism at home and brought a sense of solidarity with Algerian independence. For her, Paris was a city of political commitment, activism, and militancy, qualities that would deeply inform her own revolutionary agenda and soon make her a hero to the French writers she had once studied. Kaplan, whose own junior year abroad played a prominent role in her classic memoir, French Lessons, spins these three quite different stories into one evocative biography, brimming with the ferment and yearnings of youth and shot through with the knowledge of how a single year—and a magical city—can change a whole life. No one who has ever dreamed of Paris should miss it.

Dr. King’s best-selling account of the civil rights movement in Birmingham during the spring and summer of 1963 In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, was perhaps the most racially segregated city in the United States, but the campaign launched by Fred Shuttlesworth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and others demonstrated to the world the power of nonviolent direct action. Often applauded as King’s most incisive and eloquent book, Why We Can’t Wait recounts the Birmingham campaign in vivid detail, while underscoring why 1963 was such a crucial year for the civil rights movement. King examines the history of the civil rights struggle and the tasks that future generations must accomplish to bring about full equality. The book also includes the extraordinary “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” which King wrote in April of 1963.
