A Nation Divided: The 1968 Presidential Campaign
The 1968 presidential election was like no other campaign in American history. In this lucidly written account of that campaign, Mr. Richardson describes in detail the "Clean for Gene" phenomenon that led to President Lyndon B. Johnson's startling withdrawal from the race and Robert F. Kennedy's opportunistic last-minute candidacy, as well as the campaigns of Republican Richard M. Nixon and third-party candidates George Wallace, Eldridge Cleaver, Dick Gregory and others. From the snows of New Hampshire to the tumultuous Democratic convention in Chicago to the see-saw election night battle between Nixon and Humphrey, this book will fascinate and inform political junkies and serious students of American history alike.
