This chapter discusses how contemporary and later accounts of student culture in the late 1960s have mostly focused on two phenomena: the New Left and the counterculture. The New Left, which briefly became a mass movement through its strident opposition to the Vietnam War, grew out of a mixture of Old Left labor advocacy, radical pacifism, and white civil rights activism. The counterculture, a generational mood rather than a coherent movement, was a cultural rebellion centered on sex, drugs, and rock music that broadly permeated youth culture in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Recently, scholars have begun to explore conservative forms of 1960s student activism, such as Young Americans for Freedom. Yet despite the recent burst of interest in the conservative movements of the 1960s, historians have paid relatively little attention to the cultural and political significance of conservative evangelical activism in the late 1960s.

Keywords:   student culture, New Left, counterculture, Old Left, labor advocacy, radical pacifism, civil rights activism
