About the Author

Professor of French, University of Leeds


`While some prior knowledge of the history and literature of contemporary France is necessary to appreciate the many strands of this book for their complex but clear analyses, the lively documentary style will give much pause for thought to those new to the fields covered. Books should make one want to ask questions and find out more. This one certainly does as it brings together a gamut of ways of reading recent history and tests ways in which the myths, too, of May 68 may be re-evaluated.' Mary Orr, MLR, 96.I, 2001 `Atack ... adds a valuable and well-informed retrospective to the plethora of scholarly and popular evaluations of the student's revolt of May '68 in France, and of its subsequent representation in French fiction and film.' Y. Jehenson, Choice, Jul/Aug. 2000.
