Abstract:

The mass protests that shook France in May 1968 were exciting, dangerous, creative, and influential, changing European politics to this day. Students demonstrated, workers went on general strike, and factories and universities were occupied. Before it was all over, children, homemakers, and the elderly were swept up in the life-changing events that targeted bureaucratic capitalism and the staid Communist Party. The French state was on the ropes and feared civil war or revolution. Fifty years later, here are the powerful oral testimonies of those young rebels who demanded the impossible. "May Mad Me" reveals the legacy of the uprising: how those explosive experiences changed both individuals and history.
