The volume blazes fresh trails through exploring the intellectual developments that contributed to 1968 and how the landscape of ideas was transformed by the events of that year. The innovative use of biographical information, especially of intellectuals, is one of the great strengths of this volume which breaks new ground in terms of empirical analysis as well as the evaluation of long-term intellectual developments. This is a weighty and sophisticated contribution to understanding the battle of ideas and the flow of events that shaped the ideological evolution of Europe in the 1960s and beyond. Tom Gallagher, University of Bradford
