Product Information

Published for the first time in English translation, this is the first-hand insider's account of the role played by these two radical student groups in the revolutionary events that rocked all of France in the month of May, 1968. Here are the tracts and wall grafitti, the telegrams and photos, the songs and "detourned" comics and most of all, the biting, informed, day-by-day accounts of the events in the words of one of the major participants. From the scandal in December 1966 at the university of Strasbourg, where the "outrageous figure of the Situationist International" first received widespread public attention, on through the events at the Sorbonne in Paris, and into the streets with the thousands of students and workers whose General Strike brought the French government to its knees, Rene Vienet provides an eyewitness account from the perspective of the political extremists who refused all contact with the "leftist" parties, the unions and the media. Here, in the name of the Situationists themselves are elements of the "theory of a revolution without theory". Here are the exact positions of the Enrages from Nanterre, the actions of the crucial Committee of Occupation at the Sorbonne, and the political perspectives of the extreme militants whose theory and practice far exceeded their actual numbers.

Authored by René Viénet, who joined the Situationist International in 1963.  A joint co-publication by Rebel Press and Autonomedia,1992, reprinting the 1968 original.
