Editorial Reviews


Neal Samors' book "Chicago in the Sixties" paints an accurate and engaging picture of the city's political landscape during the 1960s. At the same time, Samors provides a glimpse into many aspects of Chicago's history from life in the neighborhoods, to the Chicago sport scene, to the city's TV and radio stations. I can't recommend this wonderful collection of local histories any higher. --Aaron Max Berkowitz, Chicago Tribune

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Theseus on December 28, 2008
Format: Paperback
Nothing revolutionary about the concept -- large format book with pictures of Chicago and Chicagoans, fueled by memories and the photo albums of prominent people: Dick Biondi, Hugh Heffner, Clark Weber, etc.

Still. This one is really well done. A large, attractive format. Glossy stock. Great editorial eye. And it isn't a coffee table book. You can hold it comfortably without it hurting you.

And there's a picture of a couple of kids who were in my elementary school.
