The French University Crisis: An Essay in Sociological Diagnosis

  • Raymond Boudon

Abstract

There is no shortage of books, articles and other publications on the May–June 1968 university crisis. Quite the contrary, they can be numbered in tens if not hundreds. Yet the striking thing about them is that, even among those written by sociologists, there are scarcely any which make systematic reference to information about the functioning of the university system whether the course of this information is sociological research itself or studies carried out in an administrative context.
