1968 PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

1968 free pdf 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, Prague Spring, the Chicago convention, the anti-war movement and the Tet Offensive, the student rebellion that paralyzed France, Civil Rights, the generation gap, the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union, and the birth of the women's movement. With 1968: The Year that Rocked the World, award-winning journalist Mark Kurlansky has written his magnum opus-a cultural and political history of that world-changing year of social upheaval, when television's impact on global events first became apparent, and where simultaneously, in Paris, Prague, London, Berkeley, Chicago, New York and all over the globe uprisings spontaneously occurred. 1968 encompasses the worlds of youth and music, politics, war, economics, assassinations, riots, and demonstrations-and the media, and shows us how we got to where we are today. 1968 is destined to be Mark Kurlansky's most important and most fascinating book yet.
