really liked it
bookshelves: 1968

A race through 1968 with a journalist from that era. Kaiser focuses primarily on Eugene McCarthy's campaign for the Democratic nomination for president (Kaiser is a big fan of McCarthy's Kids) but it also touches on Nixon, Humphrey, both Kennedys, MLK and other big names of that year. He also ties in music as much as possible, and is obviously a big fan of that era's music.

A good primer on 1968 in America--and easy to read.
