Freedom in Solidarity
My Experiences in the May 1968 Uprising
Kadour Naïmi, David Porter
Kadour Naïmi came from Algeria to study in France in 1966, four years after his country’s liberation from colonial rule and two years before a different liberation movement exploded in France. Capturing the youthful enthusiasm and revolutionary earnestness of the young rebels he joined, Naïmi’s account of May ’68 is a memoir like no other. Spirited and inspiring, it manages transmit important historical lessons amid stories of sex, studies, and street-fighting. This is his first book published in English.
