From VH1's highest rated series, the companion volume about the year whose events, and soundtrack, changed American history and culture forever.

It was a shattering year in world history, as the Tet offensive turned the tide of the Vietnam War and the tide of public opinion. In the jungles of Southeast Asia and here and around the world, popular music provided the soundtrack of a generation torn by war...and desperate for change. Along with devastating events of 1968 - the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., racial unrest, the brutal police riot againt Chicago antiwar protesters, artists such as Country Joe McDonald, Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin, the Beatles and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young transformed the way we looked at the world around us. The music served sometimes as commentary, sometimes as catalyst. BEHIND THE BUSIC: 1968 brings back the hope, rage and sorrow of those incredible days, one of the most fertile periods of rock, pop and soul. Containing photos and interviews not seen in the original VH1 broadcast, this is a stirring re-creation for those who were there and want to remember...and those who wish they'd been there and want to know how it felt...
