Writing the revolution

£14.99

Product description

In Germany, the concept of '1968' is enduring and synonymous with the German Student Movement, and is viewed, variously, as a fundamental liberalisation, a myth, a second foundation, or an irritation. The movement's aims - radical re-imagination of the political and economic order and social hierarchy - have been understood as requiring a 'long march'. While the movement has been judged at best a 'successful failure', cultural elites continue to engage in the construction of 1968. Ingo Cornils's book argues that writing about 1968 in Germany is no longer about the historical events or the specific objectives of a bygone counterculture, but is instead a moral touchstone, a marker of social group identity meant to keep alive (or at bay) a utopian agenda that continues to fire the imagination.
