Promises of 1968 : Crisis, Illusion, and Utopia, Hardback Book

Promises of 1968 : Crisis, Illusion, and Utopia Hardback

Edited by Vladimir Tismaneanu


Offers a state of the art reassessment of the importance and consequences of the events associated with 1968, the year that radically influenced the landscape of the post-1945 world.

In the context of the ColdWar, 1968 was a transnational moment of revolt against the status quo.

The essays go beyond the East-West divide in the process of identifying the common features of the sixties, and offer a synthesis of approaches, gathering important re-assessments of the intellectual history of 1968.

Some of the most distinguished scholars of the subject include former sixty-eighters, who critically re-evaluate the events.

The historical analyses are based on new archival research pursued in a number of countries.

The book gives novel theoretical insights in the nature and significance of the decade; and integrates 1968 with its pre-history and aftermath.
