Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Nineteen sixty-eight. A radical wave swept the world. From Washington to London, Paris to Saigon, Berlin to Lahore, Chicago to Mexico City, people took to the streets demanding emancipation. In Vietnam, the guerrilla armies launched the Tet (New Year) offensive, which shattered the United States' military confidence and changed the course of history. In 1968: Marching in the Streets, Tariq Ali and Susan Watkins capture the mood of this pivotal year and the feelings that motivated those who wanted to change the world. These were days of hope and love, of satire, music, poetry and a new wave in cinema. 1968: Marching in the Streets is a celebration of the people and an explanation of the events that marked that year. Firsthand accounts from every continent reveal the universal nature of the ferment of '68. It was a year in which millions fought shoulder to shoulder against war, dogma and repression of every sort. This book is their story.
