1968: The Year That Rocked the World
Mark Kurlansky (au)
Here is a singular & definitive look at a pivotal year in world history. 1968 was the year of sex & drugs & rock & roll; it was also the year of the Martin Luther King & Bobby Kennedy assassination, the Prague Spring, the Chicago convention, the Tet offensive in Vietnam & the anti-war movement, the student rebellion that paralyzed France, civil rights, the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union, & the birth of the women’s movement. Kurlansky has written a cultural & political history of that world-changing year of social upheaval, when TV’s impact on global events first became apparent, & when simultaneously -- in Paris, Prague, London, Berkeley, & all over the globe -- uprisings spontaneously occurred.
