France's Convenient Consensus
Distributed for University of Wales Press
This book sheds new light on one of the most significant periods in recent French history, the student revolts of May 1968. These events saw a strictly student-based revolt quickly become an all-out social crisis that threatened the political status quo of the time. In its exposure of a deep-seeded malaise, 1968 has gone on to acquire iconic status as a watershed year in the development of innumerable sectors of French society.
