1968 - almost no other year in the twentieth century is accorded such symbolic status, is so rife with myths, prejudices, and emotions. The year 1968 represents the zenith and turning point of an international emancipation movement and worldwide social upheaval. Numerous essays by authors from diverse disciplines, eyewitness accounts, and interviews as well as some 550 illustrations illuminate the global "1968." They shed light on the most important events in Germany, France, and the United States, in Czechoslovakia and the USSR, but also in India, Cuba, and Mexico. The focus is primarily on the stimulating role of art, which visualizes, comments upon, and critiques social processes in an unprecedented and innovative way.
