This study reviews and analyzes the multiple impact of the May 1968 events in France, initially through a narrative account of the events themselves and then through a systematic survey of the various manners in which they have been interpreted and reproduced in France. This covers political, social/sociological and cultural texts - first-hand accounts along with works by political activists and academic social scientists - before moving to a consideration of fictional works (novels and feature films) dealing with or set during the events. Keith Reader has also written "Intellectuals and the Left in France since 1968" and is currently a member of the editorial boards of "Paragraph" and "Modern and Contemporary France".
