This volume examines the protest movements of 1968 from innovative perspectives. With contributions from leading social theorists the book reflects on the untold narratives of race, gender and sexuality and critically addresses the standard theoretical assumptions of 1968 to discuss overlooked perspectives.

'it is best described as a set of reflections on the intellectual consequences of the events of that year. Social movement scholars are thus just as likely to find nuggets of insight on particular theoretical and intellectual questions as any other reader.'
