1968 - the Year That Rocked the World

by Mark Kurlansky
£11.99   paperback  Vintage (2004)

1968 - the Year That Rocked the World by Mark Kurlansky Encompassing the worlds of youth and music, politics, war, economics, demonstrations and the media, 1968 shows us how we got to where we are today. It was the year of sex and drugs and rock and roll; it was also the year of the Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy assassinations, the Prague Spring, the Chicago Convention, the Tet Offensive in Vietnam and the anti-war movement, the student rebellion that paralysed France, civil rights, the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union, and the birth of the women's movement. Award-winning journalist Mark Kulansky has written a cultural and political history of that world-changing year of social upheaval

'A fascinating account ... combining the rigour of the historian with the powerful emotions of someone who was a twenty-year old student at the time'
