1968 and all That

La revolution est incroyable parce que vraie

 

"Jean-Paul Sartre described the animating spirit of the 1960s as the liberation of the sense of the possible, captured by the French students of May '68 in the slogan "L'imagination au pouvoir."

  Jeremy Varon

"Bringing the War Home"
