Routledge Handbook of the Global Sixties

Between Protest and Nation-Building

Edited by Chen Jian, Masha Kirasirova, Martin Klimke, Mary Nolan, Marilyn Young, Joanna Waley-Cohen

Abingdon: Routledge, 2018

As the fiftieth anniversary of 1968 approaches, this book reassesses the global causes, themes, forms, and legacies of that tumultuous period.

While existing scholarship continues to largely concentrate on the US and Western Europe, this volume focuses on Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. International scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds explore the global sixties through the prism of topics that range from the economy, decolonization, and higher education, to forms of protest, transnational relations, and the politics of memory.

This handbook thus attempts to inspire a new scholarly reflection on the politics of memory and historiographical narratives of the “long sixties” in preparation of the 50th anniversary of 1968 that is decidedly global and offers in-depth perspectives on previously neglected themes and geographical areas.
