More about the book:
Blazing hot meets icy cool in a momentous year in US history
On New Year’s Day in 1967, the 200 million Americans who lived in the United States were about to experience a fascinating, exciting, and sometimes bewildering twelve months that for many formed an iconic portion of their lives. Despite the fact that the coming year produced no Black Friday, Pearl Harbor, or 9/11 attack, the nation still underwent dramatic changes in everything from support for the Vietnam War to approval of candidates for the 1968 presidential election to attitudes toward sex with strangers and what constitutes the status quo.

Professor Brooks spoke at the National Archives on December 15, 2017 in support of a series of lectures about the Vietnam War. More about that lecture:
Professor Victor Brooks takes us back 50 years and explores how the year 1967—a year of dramatic change—affected the lives of 200 million Americans in everything from support for the expanding war in Vietnam and the first Super Bowl to the beginning of the 1968 Presidential campaign and the “Summer of Love.” A book signing follows the program.
