It was the year the Cold War first thawed, the space race accelerated, feminism and civil rights exploded, President Kennedy's assassination numbed the world, and the Beatles and Bob Dylan emerged as the poster boys and prophet, respectively, of a revolution that changed everything. It was the year when youth, for the first time in history, became a commercial and cultural force with the power to shape society.
1963 is the first book to recount the kinetic story of the Youth Quake movement--the liberation of youth through music, fashion, and the arts--told in the voices of those at the forefront, from Keith Richards to Eric Clapton, Mary Quant to Vidal Sassoon, Graham Nash to Peter Frampton, Alan Parker to Gay Talese, Stevie Nicks to Norma Kamali, and many more. A fast-paced, historical eyewitness account, it is also an inspiration to anyone in search of a passion, an identity, and a dream.
