In order to prepare a competitive examination, I've got to delve deep into North American counterculture history. What should I read ?

I need all sort of documents, analyses, frames of reference about this subject. Reflections upon the evolution of artistic forms, of ideas, of politics, of cultural, social and individual structures from the fifties to the seventies, in the U.S.A.
The theme of the examination revolves around the notions of Revolts and Utopias, and the only reference that is given is the Theodore Roszak' book, The Making of a Counter Culture.
That's a subject I feel naturally attracted to, so do not hesitate to point to all sort of references. If I don't read the books, watch the films, listen to the podcasts right now, I will do it eventually.
