About this title

Synopsis:

All of James A. Michener's storytelling and reportorial skills are brought to the fore in this stunning and heartbreaking examination of the events that led to the 1970 shootings at Kent State, which shook the country to the roots and had a profound impact on the anti-war movement.

From the Publisher:

My father served in Vietnam, but does not discuss it often. So, I try to read as much as I can about Vietnam so I can learn about what it must have been like for him. Most of what I read is about actual cobmat experiences, but I also find it interesting and important to know what was happening "back in the states" during the Vietnam era. The shootings at Kent State had a profound effect on the anti-war movement, and James Michener skillfully examines this tragic moment in U.S. history in KENT STATE: WHAT HAPPENED AND WHY.
--Stacey Witcraft, Advertising Manager
