1968 was a year of rebellion and revolution across the world. In France, a student revolt sparked the biggest general strike in history to that point, with ten million workers taking action against the hated de Gaulle regime.
These two pamphlets brilliantly capture the mood of students and workers in Paris, highlighting their creativity, their radicalism and the possibility of fundamental social transformation that existed at the time. They also document the fundamentally counter-revolutionary role of the French Communist Party, which proved to be the best defender of capitalism.
Includes "France - The struggle goes on" by Tony Cliff and Ian Birchall, and "Paris: May 68", an eyewitness account by Maurice Brinton.
