France in Crisis: The "May Revolution" and its Aftermath
Weiner, William Paul
MetadataShow full item record
The impetus for a lengthy study of the French situation developed from two visits to France, one in 1964 and the other in 1967-68, and an introduction study of the French governmental system in Political Science. In writing France in Crisis: The "May Revolution" and Its Aftermath, I began with three purposes. First of all, I hoped to examine France in greater depth, using library research and personal correspondence, in order to set the stage for contemporary events. Secondly, in response to countless questions I was asked during the 1968 disturbances, I hoped to carefully describe the spring turmoil. Finally, I wished to analyze these events, discuss them as they related to the French traditions of the past and use the analysis to look at the future of Fifth Republic France.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
