The year 1968 symbolizes a tumultuous time in contemporary history that featured demonstrations, riots, and resistance by youth. Fraser and his associates join the 20-year anniversary retrospective by examining student revolts in six industrialized countries: the United States, West Germany, France, Italy, Britain, and Northern Ireland. The authors interviewed participants, creating an exhaustive, comprehensive oral history of the time. The far-reaching scope of the book studies similarities and differences among movements, but necessarily eliminates in-depth investigation of groups. Of particular interest are participants' reflections on the rebellious era. Excellent bibliography, chronology, and index.Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svces., Wondervu, Colo.
