Why was the French Communist Party hostile to the student rebellion in May-June 1968, when one might have expected a revolutionary party to support a revolutionary movement? Richard Johnson shows that the events of May-June 1968 are proof of the ultimately unbridgeable gap between contemporary communism and revolutionary thought and action.
