1968 in America
From assassinations to student riots, this is ';a splendidly evocative account of a historic yeara year of tumult, of trauma, and of tragedy' (Arthur Schlesinger Jr.). In the United States, the 1960s were a period of unprecedented change and upheavalbut 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 beforeand popular culture, especially music, was being revolutionized. Largely based on unpublished interviews and documentsincluding in-depth conversations with Eugene McCarthy and Bob Dylan, among many others, and the late Theodore White's archives, to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 access1968 in America is a fascinating social history, and the definitive study of a year when nothing could be taken for granted. ';Kaiser aims to convey not only what happened during the period but what it felt like at the time. Affecting touches bring back powerful memories, including strong accounts of the impact of the Tet offensive and of the frenzy aroused by Bobby Kennedy's race for the presidency.' The New York Times Book Review
