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.
