I initially read this book only because it was assigned in my American History class. But wow! I am hooked on it. I didn't live during 1968, so sometimes it's hard for me to fully grasp the importance of the events that occured during the time. I've been living with the effects and consequences of the events of 1968 for the 25 years I've been alive, but I took for granted that this was just the way things are. Reading this book has very much 'enlightened' me to the way life was pre-1968, and to the national and political events that took place during that year. My professor is a fantastic lecturer, but even he was unable to make me 'feel' 1968 like this book did. I am emotionally attached to this book now--I almost feel now as if I did live during the period--and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to gain a better understanding of American politics in general. Nothing has opened my eyes like this book, especially combined with my professor's lectures and my own interest in 20th century American politics. This is one book I won't be selling back with the rest of my textbooks at the end of the semester.
