Observer’s 40th Anniversary Issue on ’68

Always nice to read about the history of 1968, that famous ‘bourgeois moment’ (as Prof Paul Ginsborg nicely coined it in class in 1987) and what ‘went on’ in Mexico.

Nice also to see them quoting Kate Millet, who I had the pleasure of meeting at some obscure mental health event in East Berlin in 1998. Also remember distinctly a performance by a singer there where who literally screamed into the microphone, and yet it wasn’t a scream, it was a song..hmm.

But as to the Observer’s Special (click for pics), isn’t it kind of time to move on from ’68, I mean a whole ‘Special Issue’?!
