Synopsis

Italy and 1968 Youthful Unrest and Democratic Culture by Stuart J. Hilwig

A comprehensive look at how the 'establishment' responded to the Italian student revolt of 1968. Using oral interviews, media analysis and archival evidence, the book explores the reactions of those who became the frequent targets of student protests - professors, police, activists' parents, the clergy, journalists, lawyers and auto workers.

Reviews

'This study...clear analysis of some key and under-studied aspects of Italy's 1968. It should provide students and university teachers with food for thought in an age of university privatisation, cuts and huge fee increases.' - Modern Italy'
