Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Daniel Singer is the left's most brilliant arsonist. He sets ablaze whole forests of desiccated clichés about 'the end of history' and 'the triumph of the market' in order to light the way forward for the next generation of radical thinkers and activists."—Mike Davis

An essential firsthand account of the May 1968 upheaval in France.

Synopsis:

A riveting eye-witness account of the 1968 Paris student-worker revolt that shook France and threatened the very roots of capitalism.

About the Author

Daniel Singer (September 26, 1926 – December 2, 2000) was a socialist writer and journalist. He was best known for his articles for The Nation in the United States and for The Economist in Britain, serving for decades as a European correspondent for each magazine. Gore Vidal described Singer as "one of the best, and certainly the sanest, interpreters of things European for American readers", with a "Balzacian eye for human detail."
