A team of European social scientists investigated the various facets of increased militancy in the late 1960s. The results are contained in individual essays, which take account of the changes that preceded and were accentuated by the economic crisis of 1973. The first volume deals with the increase in industrial conflicts and the consequences in the major European countries; the second volume takes up the more general problems - inter alia, the role of women and immigrants, the changing role of the state and of the politics of the trade unions. A major effort at clarification and analysis.
