Description

In the United States, the 1960s were a period of unprecedented change and upheaval-but the year 1968 in particular stands out as a dramatic turning point. Americans witnessed the Tet offensive in Vietnam; the shocking assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy; and the chaos at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. At the same time, a young generation was questioning authority like never before-and popular culture, especially music, was being revolutionized. Largely based on unpublished interviews and documents-including in-depth conversations with Eugene McCarthy and Bob Dylan, among many others, and the late Theodore White's archives, to which the author had sole access-1968 in America is a fascinating social history, and the definitive study of a year when nothing could be taken for granted.
