The rage within. While the "good life" delivered peace to White America, Black Americans demanded their constitutional rights as citizens. Key events like the brutal murder of schoolboy Emmet Till, the rise of athlete superstars like Bill Russell and Willie Mays and the growing power of the media finally forced America to examine issues of racial discrimination and equality for all -- The road to the sixties. As Detroit built cars to suit every American Dream, roadsters sprouted tail fins and gaudy chrome bumpers. Meanwhile, the country's appetite for speed was fed by "fast food" invented in Dick and "Mac" McDonald. But with the launch of Sputnik America took a back seat to the Soviet Union in the "Space race."

Allah's torch : a report from behind the scenes in Asia's war on terror by Tracy Dahlby ( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Long before September 11, 2001, terrorism's global elite was already zeroing in on Indonesia - the world's most populous Islamic nation, and its largest archipelago, where dense jungles and intricate, unpatrolled coastlines conceal almost endless hiding places. Acclaimed journalist and filmmaker Tracy Dahlby takes us into this dangerous terrain, both before and after 9/11, interweaving the divergent perspectives of Koran-thumping preachers, hardened holy warriors, military commandos, and embattled Muslim moderates, in a first-rate reporting adventure that sheds new light on the epidemic chaos now threatening our international community." "Allah's Torch charts a course through a sprawling land unknown to most Americans where the home-bred Jemaah Islamiyah, Asia's answer to Al Qaeda, pursues its deadly ambition of pressing all of Southeast Asia under the yoke of a pure Islamic super-state. Dahlby gives readers a highly personal tour of the militant Jakarta slums, terrorist-traumatized Bali, and the Islamic heartland on the island of Java, where the outcome of a struggle now raging between moderate Muslims and their extremist brethren for the country's Islamic soul promises to have far-reaching effects on the lives of ordinary Americans."--BOOK JACKET. ¹
