George Katsiaficas, "The Global Imagination of 1968: Revolution and Counterrevolution"

Photo of KatsiaficasGeorge Katsiaficas has written and edited eleven books, including The Global Imagination of 1968: Revolution and Counterrevolution (PM Press) on the global uprising of 1968 and European social movements. A longtime activist for peace and justice, he was a student of book cover Katsiaficas Herbert Marcuse. Currently, he is based at Chonnam National University in Gwangju, South Korea, and at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston.

The Global Imagination of 1968 brings to life social movements of the 1960s, a period of world-historical struggles. With discussions of more than fifty countries, Katsiaficas articulates an understanding that is neither bounded by national and continental divides nor focused on “Great Men and Women.” Millions of people went into the streets, and their aspirations were remarkably similar. From the Prague revolt against Soviet communism to the French rights movement, and campus eruptions in Latin America, Yugoslavia, the United States, and beyond, this book portrays the movements of the 1960s as intuitively tied together.
