Overview

From the mid-1960s to the early 1970s, revolutions in theory, politics, and cultural experimentation swept around the world.

Editorial Reviews

Daniel A. Segal

"A rich and compelling volume.... [M]akes an important contribution to scholarship on ‘1968,’ and it is very teachable." —Daniel A. Segal, Munroe Center for Social Inquiry, Pitzer College

Lynne Huffer

"The Long 1968 makes an important contribution to our understanding of politics and social life over four decades after the revolutionary fervor of 1968. As a complex, overlapping series of reflections on the impact of '68 in a present moment characterized by political apathy, cynicism, paralysis, and even despair, the volume is especially welcome. For those readers still committed to the possibility of political and social transformation, the volume offers both a sobering assessment of the differences between ‘then’ and ‘now’ and an intriguing invitation to reclaim the ‘spirit of '68’ for creative interventions in the present.... Sophisticated enough for an audience of specialists but also will be accessible to non-specialists. It will be especially valuable in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in history; cultural studies; women's and gender studies; science and especially technology studies; French, Latin American, and African studies; art history; and media studies.... An impressive achievement." —Lynne Huffer, Emory University
