This study reviews and analyzes the multiple impact of the May 1968 events in France, initially through a narrative account of the events themselves and then through a systematic survey of the various manners in which they have been interpreted and reproduced in France. This covers political, social/sociological and cultural texts - first-hand accounts along with works by political activists and academic social scientists - before moving to a consideration of fictional works (novels and feature films) dealing with or set during the events. Keith Reader has also written "Intellectuals and the Left in France since 1968" and is currently a member of the editorial boards of "Paragraph" and "Modern and Contemporary France".

Not illustrated. 1866 Excerpt: ... his commanding officer most truly says, he was an officer of fine judgment, cool courage, and commendable energy. He was killed instantly in the act of brandishing his sword defiantly. Lieutenant-Colonel Goodwyn, of the Second regiment, and LieutenantColonel Bland, of the Seventh South Carolina regiment, were both severely wounded, conspicuously exposed as they were in the active discharge of their duties in the field. Major Gaillard, of the Second regiment, was charged with the important and responsible duty of directing the movements of the skirmishers during the day. This duty he discharged with great judgment and gallantry. His horse was killed under him during the engagement. He was efficiently assisted in the duties of his position by Major Rutherford, Third South Carolina volunteers. Captain Kemper and the officers and men under his command maintained the high reputation they established at Vienna, Bull Run, and Manassas. For particular mention of such of the company officers as require especial notice, I respectfully refer to the reports of the regimental commanders, which accompany this. This action being closed by the approach of a stormy night, my command, reenforced by the Eighteenth Mississippi regiment, Colonel Griffin, lay upon their arms on the field of battle until daylight, when it was ascertained that the enemy had disappeared. Removing our wounded and burying our dead, we marched, under the command of Major-General McLaws, by the Enroughty Town road to New Market, and prepared to bivouac for the night, but were almost immediately ordered forward to the support of General Longitreet, then engaged with the enemy at Frazier's farm. On the way, we were halted and permitted to rest until eleven o'clock p. M., when we continued the march to F...


Extreme Events

The assessment of risks posed by natural hazards such as floods, droughts, earthquakes, tsunamis or cyclones is often based on short-term historical records that may not reflect the full range or magnitude of events possible. As human populations grow, especially in hazard-prone areas, methods for accurately assessing natural hazard risks are becoming increasingly important.

In Extreme Events Jonathan Nott describes the many methods used to reconstruct such hazards from natural long-term records. He demonstrates how long-term (multi-century to millennial) records are essential in gaining a realistic understanding of the variability of natural hazards, and how short-term historical records can often misrepresent the likely risks associated with natural hazards.

This book will form a useful resource for students taking courses covering natural hazards and risk assessment. It will also be valuable for urban planners, policy makers and non-specialists as a guide to understanding and reconstructing long-term records of natural hazards.
