“In his succinctly titled 1968, Michael T. Kaufman draws on New York Times archives, his personal experience as a young Times staffer, a wealth of historic news photographs and other sources to replay these often bloody highlights from that pivotal year. Older readers who lived through 1968 will profit from Kaufman’s account, as will younger ones who can’t remember who came first.” —The New York Times Book Review“Introduces readers to the people and events that defined one important year in history.” —Library Media Connection
