The '60s ushered in a whole new way of thinking, perceiving, expressing ourselves and knowing ourselves. Though the term "New Age" wasn't used then, that term gradually came to encompass much that is coming to a head right now. The quest for self-knowledge, spiritual consciousness, and inner peace became the trend when the Beatles went to study with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Since then hundreds, probably thousands of books have been written on this subject, especially "Self-Help" types. In fact, the New Age brought an explosion of "Self-Help" books in many areas of need and interest, including sex!
The anger over the war in Vietnam, along with the criminal charges brought against President Richard Nixon ended the age of innocence of our perceptions toward the government and military, and of course, the '60s was known as an age of radicals, hippies, anti-establishment-ism, and sexual freedom. All of these changes that happened back then have brought us to where we are now, and they have been so incorporated into our everyday lives, that, if you didn't live back then, you wouldn't realize how far we have traveled in fifty-some years. But those of us who were there, remember.
And so, this index will contain materials related to those mentioned above, and even more. The quest for natural living has emerged from a world of toxins. Books about holistic healing, organic growing, and environmental issues will be part of this index. And so will those nasty subjects that some think are conspiracy theories, and the even nastier ones that question the "truth" about Jesus (gasp). This will be a quite varied index! I have tons of books that will eventually make their way onto this page. I hope you check them out. Enjoy!
