Summary A comprehensive look at how the 'establishment' responded to the Italian student revolt of 1968. Using oral interviews, media analysis and archival evidence, the book explores the reactions of those who became the frequent targets of student protests - professors, police, activists' parents, the clergy, journalists, lawyers and auto workers. More than thirty years after the university upheavals of the late 1960s, people still line up on both sides of the barricades to debate the significance of the student revolts. Despite the large number of works on the 1968 uprisings, our understanding of this crucial period remains limited because scholars have focused almost exclusively on the role of students in these events. In this book, Stuart Hilwig brings a fresh perspective to the 1960s, venturing beyond the campus to chart the public response to Italy's student rebellion. Using an innovative blend of oral interviews, media analysis, and archival evidence, the reader encounters a world of professors, police, clergy, concerned parents, town fathers, lawyers, auto workers and journalists. These people all interacted with and helped to shape the actions and views of student rebels during the course of one of the twentieth century's most important movements.
