Summary
From Germany to Vietnam, from Italy to the United States, 1968 witnessed a highly unusual sequence of popular rebellions. Millions of individuals took matters into their own hands to counter imperialism, capitalism, and autocracy - indeed any kind of hierarchical thinking. Gerd-Rainer Horn offers a fascinating re-assessment of these turbulent times, arguing that 1968 cannot be seen in isolation: that it must be viewed in the context of a much larger period of experimentation and revolt. He sheds valuable new light both on social movements and on their individual participants
