This chapter outlines the coffeehouse network's later years, when the administration of President Richard Nixon dramatically shifted to tone and direction of the war in Vietnam. Coffeehouses evolved to become more dynamic institutions, responding to an entirely new set of issues. They also encountered significant financial and personnel setbacks, as national antiwar organizations struggled and split apart. This chapter pays particular attention to the "FTA Show," a celebrity-studded antiwar revue that toured the coffeehouse network in 1971.

Keywords:   FTA Show, Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, Nixon, Identity Politics, VOLAR, All-Volunteer Force, U.S. Navy
