Abstract: Young twenty-and thirty-somethings now wear garb from the sixties and seventies to costumed events, little aware that to persons of a certain age (including their own parents) these clothes were a political statement as well as fashion. Similarly, among that aging cohort of baby boomers, the "student revolution" of the 1960s and 1970s encompasses a national as well as a personal level of experience. Unfortunately, as a nation, Americans are provincial when they are not xenophobic-long may we lament the demise of foreign-language requirements in academe and the inadequate attention to the proprieties of English in the anti-elite era of inclusiveness.
