Abstract:

A photographic record, with comments, of the two political conventions.

"Few events in the United States have ever commanded more attention, aroused deeper passions, caused wider splits between friends, police and civilians, youth and adults, and even members of the same family, or created havoc on a grander scale amon veteran politicians--Republican and Democrat alike--than did the 1968 national conventions for the presidency in Miami Beach and Chicago. Every American has been affected by the results of the two conventions: Miami Beach with its oldtime charades of flag-and-button-encrusted delegates, its rallies, "spontaneous" demonstrations, and its high-pressure, arm-twisting backstage powerplays; Chicago with its White House-ordained candidate, its crusading challengers, anti-war demonstrators, hippies, soft black voices seldom raised in anger, and shouting white voices--profane, outraged, embattled: riot edging toward revolution"
