I suppose we're now talking about "the long sixties" like we talk about "the long eighteenth century."

I'm all for it. I so stubbornly resisted the end of the sixties I called 1970 "1960-10" etc.  

Written on October 5, 1960-44!

  I'm not sure about that particular quote, but Bruce Schulman's book,
  The Seventies, defines the 1970s as 1968-1984. By doing this, he argues
  that the shift in opinion regarding Vietnam, the civil rights movement,
  Woodstock and the summer of love were all much more a part of the 1970s
  than the 1960s. His delineation largely revolves around the
  presidential terms of Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan (his first term).
  It also parallels the shift of power from the rustbelt to the sunbelt.

  Although this book is not about films, it might be a useful resource
  regarding the surrounding culture. Ultimately, Schulman resists
  defining decades by a specific set of years and instead focuses on what
  he perceives as directly linked occurrences.
