KIRKUS REVIEW

Here Jacques Sauvageot of the National Union of French Students (UNEF), Alain Geismar of the National Union of Higher Education (SNESup)-the two center groups-- and Daniel Cohn-Bendit of the more radical March 22nd Movement explain their political ideologies and their programs. They are agreed in demanding ""student power"" to initiate change particularly in the two crucial relationships--university to government, and students to teachers, and in urging that students and workers unite in an anti-bourgeois ""political movement."" Included also is a round table discussion with these and other leaders that First appeared on Radio Luxembourg and Jean Paul Sartre's interview of Cohn-Bendit published in Le Nouvel Observateur in May. Sartre, an old radical, chides the younger militant for his moderation, and Cohn-Bendit responds, ""give us time. First we must discuss, reflect, seek new formulae."" Press coverage expanded.
