Book Recommendation - 1968

It seems impossible to be reading about 1968 as history. It seems like yesterday, until your kids look at you blankly when you talk about hippies, sit-ins, summer of love and so on. Kurlansky does a good job of looking at 1968 as a pivotal year around the world, though his personal political biases regularly interfere with the reporting.

If you lived it, or if you are trying to figure out what somebody is talking about, this is a good place to refresh and learn.
