A photographic exploration of the most revolutionary year of the twentieth century: 1968. Social unrest, political turmoil, and cultural upheaval: that is what comes to mind when most people think about 1968. That landmark year includes everything from the Summer of Love to the space missions that landed us on the moon, and this book captures it all in stunning images, taken by the most talented photographers of the time. Here are the shocking assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, hippies in Haight-Ashbury, global protests, and groundbreaking art, including epoch-making films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Broadway musical Hair, and some of the greatest music ever created by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, and Jim Morrison.
