Duncan, a former U.S. Marine photographer (This is War! and War without Heros) and frequent contributor to LIFE magazine turned his camera towards the "war at home"- the fight for the presidency at the height of the U.S. involvement in Viet Nam. This book is a chronological document of the 1968 Republican and Democrat conventions. It is a startling view of the machine of American politics at a time of deep strife and contention. Duncan's camera is remarkably impartial and revealing.
