It s also a great read, in Gaillard s trademark knowledgeable but casual, nearly conversational style A jaw dropping popular history of the 1960s John Grooms, Creative LoafingThere is a bittersweet pleasure in reading A Hard Rain, Frye Gaillards very personal account of the 1960s, and the subtitle captures our ambivalence Our Decade of Hope, Possibility and Innocence Lost Gaillards graceful narrative may be about a past decade, but he speaks to the present for the lost opportunities and the moral and political failures of the 1960s have returned to haunt us today Dan Carter, Education Foundation, University Professor Emeritus, University of South CarolinaA child of the Sixties and one of the leading civil rights reporters of his generation, Frye Gaillard has given us a riveting tour along what he calls the fine line between history and journalism As a reporter he has witnessed a great deal and interviewed many of the key figures of the decade that shaped Americas future while breaking its heart As a scholar he has read widely and thought deeply about our nations halting pursuit of justice and mercy for all A Hard Rain is essential reading for a time when an American president has willfully ignored the hard earned lessons from our passage through the most tumultuous decade of social change since the Civil War Howell Raines, Former Executive Editor of The New York Times, winner of the Pulitzer PrizeThe Sixties had it all social movements and space exploration, once in a generation musicians and once in a lifetime martyrs, a Cold War and a hot one, too A Hard Rain beautifully ties it all together in poetic prose that makes the pain and pleasure, tragedy and triumph of these tumultuous years come alive Whether you came of age during the Sixties like author Frye Gaillard or were born after it like me, A Hard Rain is the new starting point for anyone who wants to understand the most impactful decade of the 20th century Hasan Kwame Jeffries, Professor of History, Ohio State University, author of Bloody Lowndes Civil Rights and Black Power in Alabamas Black Belt.An enlightening picture of America at a historic juncture Publishers Weekly Starred ReviewA Hard Rain is a smart, readable survey, at once personal and universal, of a decade that is still under debate today Taking a broadly synoptic view, Frye Gaillard focuses on small moments that yielded huge effects The battle against racial division quickly emerges as a major theme in Gaillard s narrative, with mileposts such as Thurgood Marshall s key role in Supreme Court decisions about how it wasn t enough simply not to segregate integration was required, too An illuminating, you are there view of events on the ground in the turbulent 1960s Kirkus ReviewsA totally absorbing read Frye Gaillard takes us there and makes it all so real that we forget we re reading Older readers will feel young, uncertain, and idealistic again Younger readers will hope to find the courage of the 1960 s in politics, artistic expression, science to improve the lot of all humankind on this precious earth Gaillard s A Hard Rain is worthy of the best literary prizes our country can bestow Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab s Wife, Four Spirits, and AbundanceAs a history, A Hard Rain is exhaustive, recounting not only well known events such as the Kennedy assassinations and the March on Washington but also dozens of less publicized incidents that spoke to the national mood Frye Gaillard excels at weaving his own experiences of the decade without distracting from the overall narrative, and his research brings long forgotten events to the fore A full scale, flowing journey through the decade Library JournalIm swept away by how comprehensive A Hard Rain is, by its anecdotal style, its readability, the range of topics, ambition of the undertaking, and emotionality and intellectual integrity of the author There has been a lot of attention these last few years to the 1960s as any number of fiftieth anniversaries have been celebrated But these have been like drum solos Frye Gaillards book, with its mixture of the personal and scholarly, with its weaving together of so many stories, is simply symphonic This is great work Malcolm Margolin, author and award winning editor and founder of Heyday and News from Native CaliforniaFrye Gaillard has written a sweeping and yet penetrating account of the 1960s, recalling not only the famous activists and leaders but also the musicians, artists and writers whose work helped shape that tumultuous era Its a deeply personal
