Summary "The events of 1968 have been seen as a decisive turning point in the Western world of even mythical significance. The author takes a critical look at the conclusion that "May 1968" was remarkable not because of the actual transformations it produced but rather by virtue of the revolutionary power that much of the media and most scholars have attributed to it and which turned it into a symbol of a youthful, renewed, and freer society in France and beyond."--Jacket
