Historical Notes: Roy Jenkins - the hero of the Sixties

LIKE NEW York's Greenwich Village, an intellectual-cum-social concept never so limited as to be an actual geographical enclave, "the Sixties", another such phenomenon, was always more than mere chronology: a state of mind rather than a mere decade. The beginnings can be traced to the late Forties, among the US beats whose anabases across America can be seen as triggering all that would follow, and the termination in the late 1970s, in the supposedly anti-hippie, but far more anti-establishment world of punk. And in between a variety of melodramas: the annus mirabilis of '63 (Beatlemania, Profumo, the Kennedy killing) the "Summer of Love" of '67, the "revolution" of '68, the Oz Trial of '71 and all the rest.
