In the process of getting inspired to write a paper on Jacques Rancière, I looked back at Kristin Ross’ 2002 May ’68 and its Afterlives. I read this book in French two years ago, and had a very different reaction to it then. It is much more interesting after one has actually read Rancière, and especially Badiou. The conception and construction of the book are impressive. I wish I had time to go through it more carefully.
