In many ways, this momentous year led us to where we are today. Whether through youth and music, politics and war, economics and the media, Mark Kurlansky shows how 12 volatile months transformed who we were as a people. But above all, he gives a new insight into the underlying causes of the unique historical phenomenon that was the year 1968.

    " This is one of the best books I have ever read. Really captures the time and shows the relation between all these different revolts. The stories are amazing and it gives you a great understanding of a historic time. "

    " My goodness, so much happened in this year and this brings it all back. It was the year we graduated college and started "real life" and jobs in NYC. So it was an eventful year for the us and for the US and for the world. This book was wonderfully researched and was very readable as well as nostalgic. "

    " Since I graduated from high school in 1968, this helped me remember those events during my senior year that was so lost because of the Viet-Nam War. Gift from one of my children. "
