To some, 1968 was the year of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Yet it was also the year of the Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy assassinations; the riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago; Prague Spring; the antiwar movement and the Tet Offensive; Black Power; the generation gap; avant-garde theater; the upsurge of the womens movement; and the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union. In this monumental book,Mark Kurlansky brings to teeming life the cultural and political history of that pivotal year, when televisions influence on global events first became apparent, and spontaneous uprisings occurred simultaneously around the world. Encompassing the diverse realms of youth and music, politics and war, economics and the media,1968shows how twelve volatile months transformed who we were as a peopleand led us to where we are today.
