1968 was a monumental year in US and world history, from the assassinations of RFK and MLK to the Tet Offensive to the Democratic convention in Chicago. A friend I work with is fascinated by all things 1968 and has read a lot of books on that year. His favorite is Mark Kurlansky's 1968: The Year that Rocked the World, which he calls "the most definitive book on the social, cultural, and political history" of 1968. My friend also collects all things 1968, most notably pennies (6919 and counting!). If you want to add to his collection, go here.
