Published twenty years later, full of interviews with the famous folk of yesteryear, 1968 is the first international oral history of the student rebellion of '68, and the only book to compare the ways young people throughout the world tried to change the societies in which they live.

Together with an international crew of interviewers, Ronald Fraser has constructed the first large-scale oral history of this remarkable era, relying upon the testimony  of those who were not national leaders, but the troops of the movement. 

1968 captures both the excitement and the drama of the period, from mounting barricades in Paris, to breaking back the segregation in the American South, to exploring the possibilities of sexual freedom. 

For all those who lived through the period and wish to see it not only in the context of history, but as part of an international movement, this will be the book to turn to.
