"On the eve of the new year 1968, Americans faced a somber outlook, judging from what greeted them in their daily newspapers and on their network television screens. A holiday truce in the Vietnam War had been marred by incidents of violence on both sides, offering little promise that the mayhem of 1967 in Southeast Asia - and the protests against the war at home - would diminish substantially in the new year."
From Library Journal:
Witcover (Mad as Hell, LJ 8/93), a columnist for the Baltimore Sun, was an eyewitness to many of the tumultuous events of 1968. He chronicles here the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, increasing public unrest over America's involvement in the Vietnam War, college campus upheaval, and the chaotic Democratic National Convention in Chicago, concluding it was during this year that America turned its back on the progressive social and political changes that marked the 1960s. These events culminated in the election of Richard Nixon as president, and in the years to follow the country would become increasingly cynical about politics and government. Because he was present at many seminal events of that year, Witcover is able to provide a rich and compelling narrative of the time. Highly recommended.?Roseanne Castellino, D'Youville Coll.

Jules Witcover's re-creation of the driven politics of 1968, unfolding the drama month by month, is among the most valuable contributions to the recent retrospectives on that centrifugal year.... The Year the Dream Died: Revisiting 1968 in America is drawn from his notebooks of the 12 months in which the idea of the virtue of politics was discredited.
