by Andrée Hoyles
Shortly after the 1968 'May Events' in France, Andrée Hoyles undertook a detailed survey of the factory occupations which, although not highly publicised, were a crucial component in that dramatic and inspiring upheaval. She interviewed numerous trade union officials and activists, conducted a detailed questionnaire and made an exhaustive study of the many articles, pamphlets and leaflets that were written in the course of the struggles.
This book records the results of that unique study, together with Hoyles’ own stimulating reflections on the significance and achievements of these factory occupations. Not only is it indispensable reading for socialists and students of French politics but it will be of great interest to all those concerned with our struggle towards freedom.
