Inhaltsangabe: A year of destiny, when history took a sharp turn. The murders of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Tet Offensive, barricades in Paris and Chicago and huge peace marches leading seemingly nowhere. A book for the '80s in the context of 1968.
From Publishers Weekly:
To Koning, novelist and activist, the radical promise that 1968 held was not the dawn of a New Age or social revolution. Rather, it was the realization by large sectors of the American people that our leaders and the mass media had consistently lied to us about U.S. motives abroad and exploitive conditions at home. For many, the author stresses, 1968the year of the Tet offensive, the siege of Chicago and the King and Kennedy assassinationsmarked a turn away from self-contemplation, toward a shared belief that collective aciton could make a difference. Koning, who was active in antiwar protests, writes from an insider's perspective as he re-creates the sense of urgency felt by many throughout 1968. This diary is a welcome antidote to the '60s-bashing that has overtaken the media.
