Reflecting on 1968

The Asociación de la Historia Actual has published an article of mine in its spring bulletin.

The article, The Music Was More Than Just A Soundtrack for the Events of 1968, is part of a special section on the anniversary of the protests of 1968. The piece explains how the messages and themes of protest music became a greater part of American culture as opposition to the Vietnam War grew.

The Asociación de Historia Actual bulletin is a multilingual peer-reviewed publication that promotes debate and research on historical issues. The organization is based at the Universidad de Cadiz in Spain.
