Cal in the 1960s

Just a quick question folks: which would you regard as the must-read books for an understanding of California's history in the 1960s? Yes, that's a really broad topic, so feel free to go for political histories, local studies (say of the Bay Area), biographies, whatever you think!  For what it's worth, I've recently enjoyed:

Jonathan Bell, California Crucible

Darren Dochuk, From Bible Belt to Sunbelt

Seth Rosenfeld, Subversives

Robert Self, American Babylon
