1968 free pdf The race for the White House in 1968 was a watershed event in American politics. In this brilliantly succinct narrative analysis, Lewis Gould shows how the events of that tumultuous year changed the way Americans felt about politics and their national leaders. Bitterness over racial issues and the Vietnam War that marked the 1968 election continued to shape national affairs and to rile American society for years afterward. And the election accelerated an erosion of confidence in American institutions that has not yet reached a conclusion. In his lucid account, now revised and updated, Mr. Gould emphasizes the importance of race as the campaign's key issue and examines the now infamous October surprises of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon as he describes the extraordinary events of what Eugene McCarthy later called the Hard Year.
