Ralf Dahrendorf puts 1968 into perspective
Sociologist Ralf Dahrendorf tries to demythologise the German student revolts of 1968 in an interview with Susanne Lang and Jan Feddersen: "I'm convinced that the true reforms began before 1968, when the Brandt-Scheel government came to power. 1968 was basically an end, not a beginning. Take the big discussion about education - the reform of laws on citizens' education rights was implemented in 1963/1964. And Willy Brandt's government statement was truly amazing, but when you look at it closely it didn't include any more proposals for change. ... At any rate, as far as I'm concerned '68 was the conclusion of a reform movement, not the beginning of a new era."
