|Abstract||1968, the year America grew up. From racial and gender equality fights to the struggle against the draft and the Vietnam War, in 1968 Americans asked tough questions and fought for their rights. Now, 30 years later, we look back on that seminal year--from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assasination to the Columbia University riots to our changing role among other nations--in this gripping introduction to the events home and abroad. The year we first took steps in space, the year we shaped the present, presented by a retired New York Times writer who lived through it all, who shares the story with detail and passion.--From publisher description.|
