From flower power, the Beatles, Mary Quant, and G-Plan furniture to marijuana, miniskirts, Pan’s People, and the hostess trolley, this is a warm and humorous homage that will appeal to all those cats and chicks who lived through the era as well as all those who dig the style, verve, and panache of the Swinging Sixties."--Publisher's description
