Student Revolt and Global Protest

The year 1968 stands for an entire decade of rebellion. All around the globe young people took to the streets in their hundreds of thousands. Norbert Frei traces the roots of this worldwide revolution, marking the differences in what triggered unrest amongst an entire generation: in Germany it was coming to terms with the past, in France it was the new universities, in England popular culture, in America the Vietnam war.

Norbert Frei, one of Germany’s leading authorities on contemporary history, presents an historical evaluation of the generation of `68, viewing events from an international perspective.
