Obsolete Communism - The Left Wing Alternative


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

Danny the Red led demonstrations at the Sorbonne in Nanterre which led to disciplinary action by the university and questioning by the local police. The immediate result of this heavy-handed discipline was a huge increase in the size of the French student movement and the outbreak of rioting which brought France to the edge of a revolution in May 1968. Obsolete Communism is vivid reporting from the front lines of that struggle offering an intimacy and immediacy possible because its writers were among the most important leaders of the movement. It also offers a political interpretation of the Spring of 1968 still unsurpassed.

Both the traditional unions and the Communist Party of France come in for searing criticism which holds them largely responsible for putting the brakes on the rebellion long enough for the Gaullists to regain power.

'Cohn-Bendit is the most dangerous scoundrel in France.' - Charles de Gaulle.

Written by Daniel Cohn-Bendit and Gabriel Cohn-Bendit, this edition published by AK Press, 2001.
