|Teilhard De Chardin
|Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. (May 1, 1881 – April 10, 1955) was a French Jesuit priest trained as a paleontologist and a philosopher, and was present at the discovery of Peking Man. Teilhard conceived such ideas as the Omega Point and the Noosphere. Teilhard's primary book, The Phenomenon of Man, set forth a sweeping account of the unfolding of the cosmos. He abandoned a literal interpretation of creation in the Book of Genesis in favor of a metaphorical interpretation. This displeased certain officials in the Catholic Curia, who thought that it undermined the doctrine of original sin developed by Saint Augustine. Teilhard's position was opposed by his church superiors, and his work was denied publication during his lifetime by the Roman Holy Office.

|The Tet Offensive (January 30, 1968 - June 8, 1968) was a series of operational offensives by the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army during the Vietnam War. The operations are called the Tet Offensive as they were timed to begin on the night of January 30–31, 1968, Tet Nguyên Ðán (the lunar new year day). The offensive began spectacularly during celebrations of the Lunar New Year and lasted about two months, although some sporadic operations associated with the offensive continued into 1969. The Tet Offensive was a tactical defeat for the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese forces, but it inflicted severe damage on American civilian morale and contributed to the withdrawal of American forces from the country.

|The Beatles were an English rock band from Liverpool whose members were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They are among the most commercially successful, and one of the most critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. Their innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s. The Beatles are the best-selling musical act of all time in the United States. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries: their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion discs and tapes worldwide. The Recording Industry Association of America certified the Beatles as the highest selling band of all time based on American sales of singles and albums. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked the Beatles #1 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. The Beatles led the mid-1960s musical 'British Invasion' into the United States. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.
|The Byrds (formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1964) were an American rock band. Bridging the gap between the socially and spiritually conscious folk music of Bob Dylan and the fresh sounding hybrid pop of The Beatles, The Byrds are widely considered to have been one of the most important and influential bands of the 1960s. Throughout their career, they helped forge such subgenres as folk rock, space rock, raga rock, psychedelic rock, jangle pop, and – on their 1968 album Sweetheart of the Rodeo – country rock. The Byrds were founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1964 by singers and guitarists Jim McGuinn (born James McGuinn III on July 13, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois) (he changed his name to Roger McGuinn in 1967, after joining the spiritual movement Subud), Gene Clark (born Harold Eugene Clark on November 17, 1941, in Tipton, Missouri; died May 24, 1991), and David Crosby (born David Van Cortlandt Crosby on August 14, 1941, in Los Angeles). Bassist Chris Hillman (born December 4, 1942, in Los Angeles) and drummer Michael Clarke (born Michael Dick on June 3, 1946, in New York City; died December 19, 1993) joined soon after.
|The Chicago Seven
|The Chicago Seven were seven defendants charged with conspiracy, inciting to riot, and other charges related to violent protests that took place in Chicago on the occasion of the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The convention, in late August, 1968, was the scene of massive demonstrations protesting the Vietnam War, which was in full swing. At first it was a carnival atmosphere. The police were edgy. Some people responded to a night-time curfew announcement with rock-throwing. Police used tear gas, and struck people with batons. People were arrested. In the aftermath, a grand jury indicted eight demonstrators and eight police officers. The original eight protester/defendants, indicted by the grand jury on March 20, 1969, were: Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, Lee Weiner, and Bobby Seale. The defense attorneys were William Kunstler and Leonard Weinglass of the Center for Constitutional Rights. The judge was Julius Hoffman. The prosecutors were Richard Schultz and Tom Foran. The trial began on September 24, 1969 and on October 9 the United States National Guard was called in for crowd control as demonstrations grew outside the courtroom.
|The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles by keyboardist Ray Manzarek (February 12, 1939 in Chicago, IL) , vocalist Jim Morrison (born in Melbourne, FL on Dec 8, 1943 - July 3, 1971), drummer John Densmore (born December 1, 1944 in Los Angeles, CA) , and guitarist Robby Krieger (January 8, 1946 in Los Angeles, CA). They were one of the most controversial bands of their time, due mostly to Morrison's cryptic lyrics and unpredictable stage persona. Since the band's dissolution in the early 1970s -- and especially since Morrison's death in 1971 -- interest in the Doors' music has remained high, at times even surpassing that which the band enjoyed during its own lifetime.

|Sales of this classic have reached 48 million copies worldwide. It is now reissued with a new introduction by the author. The Hite Report radically re-defined the world's understanding of female sexual experience and it remains to this day essential reading for women of all ages and backgrounds. First published in 1976, this title was the first scientific analysis to focus specifically on women's sexuality. Dr Hite's methodological research challenged the prevailing dominant understanding of female sexuality and put forward a new vision of scientific study. In a new introduction to this reissue of her pioneering 1976 study of female sexuality, Hite (American Academy of Maimonides U.) comments that misconceptions still persist about women's sexuality. She also notes areas in which progress has been made in the field. The volume includes the questionnaires upon which her data and conclusions were based.

|The Vietnam Moratorium
|The Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam was a large demonstration against United States involvement in the Vietnam War that took place across the United States on October 15, 1969. The Moratorium developed from Jerome Grossman's April 20, 1969 call for a general strike if the war had not concluded by October. David Hawk and Sam Brown, who had previously worked on the unsuccessful 1968 presidential campaign of Eugene McCarthy, changed the concept to a less radical moratorium and began to organize the event as the Vietnam Moratorium committee. By the standards of previous anti-war demonstrations, the event was a clear success, with millions participating throughout the world. Boston was the site of the largest turnout; about 100,000 attended a speech by anti-war Senator George McGovern.

According to Burns, the difference between transformational and transactional leadership is what leaders and followers offer one another. Transformational leaders offer a purpose that transcends short-term goals and focuses on higher order intrinsic needs. This results in followers identifying with the needs of the leader.
