Sixties Values and Nineties Realities

For the complete transcript, see Political Change: From the ’60s to the ’90s



During Reunion Weekend last fall, the Class of 1970 sponsored a discussion about national politics. Six participants were asked to reflect on 30 years of political change and to sketch the lessons of recent history. What follows is an edited version of their encounter, moderated by Williamson Evers, ’70, a political scientist at the Hoover Institution. Participants in the discussion were:

Martin Anderson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, received his Ph.D. from M.I.T. He served for four years in the White House, under Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

Douglas Bandow, J.D. ’79, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and syndicated columnist, is author of Perpetuating Poverty. He served as a special assistant to President Reagan.

Barton Bernstein, a history professor at Stanford since 1965, is the editor of The Atomic Bomb (Little, Brown, 1976), among other books. His research focuses on the Truman administration, science and technology policy, nuclear history, U.S. foreign policy and international crises.
