A Revolution of Perception? : Consequences and Echoes of 1968 Hardback
Edited by Ingrid Gilcher-Holtey
Part of the New German Historical Perspectives series
The year "1968" marked the climax of protests that simultaneously captured most industrialized Western countries.
The protesters challenged the institutions of Western democracies, confronting powerful, established parties and groups with an opposing force and public presence that negated tra-ditional structures of institutional authority and criticized the basic assump-tions of the post-war order.
Exploring the effects the protest movement of 1968 had on the political, social, and symbolic order of the societies they called into question, this volume focuses on the consequences and echoes of 1968 from different perspectives, including history, sociology, and linguistics.
