Reviews

Praise for 1968 in America

"Charles Kaiser aims to convey not only what happened during the period but what it felt like at the time. Affecting touches bring back powerful memories, including strong accounts of the impact of the Tet offensive and of the frenzy aroused by Bobby Kennedy's race for the presidency."--New York Times Book Review

"A chatty, personal view of the pivotal time . . . This account will bring back memories."--Booklist

"Kaiser's book is an evocative chronicle, a paean to the 'Sixties' generation by a member of the clan . . . His indictment of Eugene McCarthy--a chief theme--is persuasive."--Library Journal
