Read in July, 2006

An escellent account of the massive worker/student uprisings that took place in Paris in May of 68. Does an excellent job of detailing the Situationist International's role in bringing about the revolts, as well as detailing workers' involvement in the riots and occupations (history textbooks arrogantly dismiss the events as 'Student Unrest'), as well as the role of the unions and the Communist Party in pacifying and recuperating the strike back into control of the state.
