Product Details

Praise

Each chapter is thoughtfully written and thoroughly researched, with extensive author notes, endnotes, and a bibliography…Another thoroughly engrossing look at a pivotal year.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Aronson and Bartoletti (1968: Today’s Authors Explore a Year of Rebellion, Revolution, and Change) offer a timely deep dive into another turbulent and pivotal year of history: 1789…The conversational narrative styles will pull readers into this wide-ranging, thoroughly researched anthology, which recounts revolutions and revolutionary thinking big and small. Extensive author and source notes and a bibliography conclude this stirring read about themes that continue to shape urgent contemporary issues.
—Publishers Weekly Online (starred review)

An essay collection that will attract readers who want to learn about the history of personal freedoms or have a deep interest in the topic.
—School Library Journal

As they did in their previous anthology, 1968: Today’s Authors Explore a Year of Rebellion, Revolution & Change, the editors take a pivotal year in world history and, through eleven essays (by authors including themselves, Joyce Hansen, Steven Sheinkin, and Summer Edward), explore global revolutionary themes…Each essay can be appreciated individually, but the overall picture, of societies reconciling competing ideas of science and faith or equality and oppression, becomes clearer throughout the book. Appended with author notes, documentation, and a complete bibliography of sources.
—The Horn Book

This collection of eleven wide-ranging essays bridges American and world history course matter to demonstrate that episodes encountered as disparate curricular units emerged from a Zeitgeist of revolutionary thought.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
