It pays attention to several phenomena that were instrumental in shaping the 1960s: the cultural revolution, the Hippies, University protest, the feminist movement, the protest movements in Europe and in the United States and their impact on Canada, the transformation of the political culture, the development of the Welfare State, and the rise of the independence movement in Quebec.
