From Paris to Peking, Saigon to Washington, the pillars of the postwar world tottered on the brink of collapese in 1968. "Year of the Heroic Guerrilla" is a global analysis of that universal upheaval. Daniels depicts the great crises of that era: the Tet offensive and the abdication of Lyndon Johnson; the denouncement of the counterculture; the fissuring of the civil rights movement and the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.; the student revolt at Columbia Unviersity; the May uprising in France that nearly overthrew the Fifth Republic; the "cultural revolution" in China; the chilling of the Prague Spring by the Soviet army; and, finally, the convention and riots in Mayor Daley's Chicago, signalling the downturn of the revolutionary spirit in America.
