About the Authors
  • 1968: The World Transformed provides an international perspective on the most tumultuous year in the era of the Cold War. Authors from Europe and the United States explain why the crises of 1968 erupted almost simultaneously in vastly different cultures and societies. Together, the eighteen chapters provide an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the rise and fall of protest movements worldwide by integrating international relations, the role of media, and the cross-cultural exchange of people and ideas into the global history of 1968.

    • Incorporates domestic as well as international affairs
    • Interdisciplinary and comparative
