This is a fairly literary overview of radical student takeovers of campus buildings at Columbia University, the Sorbonne, and Britain. As such, the account interprests the radicals through the lens of literary figures (Sartre, etc.) And intriguing, obscure works like Living and Partly Living by Jiri Mucha and The unknown revolution, 1917-1921by Voline. Not sharing a passion for anarchistic dramatic change, Spender observes aloof and disinterestedly in his accounts and interviews.

He sees them in a sociological petri dish and dissects the radicalization of the movement, etc. Noticeably devoid of context: presaging conditions, aftermath, etc. This is an intersting primary source and a brisk read.My fave quote ...western students are enclosed by their situation which is that of living in societies where there are too many commodties rather than too few and where the state is organized in the interest of producing things... As opposed to their deprived German peers.
