Putting Greece back on the cultural and political map of the Long 1960s, this book traces the dissent and activism of anti-regime students during the dictatorship of the Colonels (1967-74). It explores the cultural as well as ideological protest of Greek student activists, illustrating how these children of the dictatorship managed to re-appropriate indigenous folk tradition for their progressive purposes and how their transnational exchange molded a particular local protest culture. It examines how the students social and political practices became a major source of pressure on the Colonels regime, finding its apogee in the three day Polytechnic uprising of November 1973 which laid the foundations for a total reshaping of Greek political culture in the following decades.
