as you are always asking about may 68, I  think it worthwhile to tell, that
Deleuze and Guattari give a very untypical impression of it.
As you know, the Anti-Oedipe is from 1972 and a markstone in switching
the political interest of the left in france from the proleterians to
the moinorites.
In 68 the main reference was the movememt of the workers, especially in
connection with Marx, Lennin and sometimes Bakunin.
There is an video interview with the late Satre, if you watch it, you get  
a far better
impression. The influence of Sartre was very strong at that time, there is  
a  remark of Guattari on the strong impression of Statre on himself.
The war in Vietnam played a big role too.
Here in germany there was a strong discussion concerning the time of the
national socialism, culminating in the thesis, that fascism is still actual
in germany. This was on the ground, that a lot of former NSDAP members
had held their positions in business, state and science. This was even the  
case in the universities.
The left discussions focused on sometimes rather technical marxian  
economy, desiring the abolition of capitalism,
and sociology.
As you surely know, the social background of the students movement was the
increasing number of students in the sixties.
In germany it goes up from a 100 000 students to 1 000 000 students,
which is a factor of ten.  A lot of new universities were founded.
Naturally the mass of the new students came from the petty bourgoisie
and the working class. So the critique on fascism was very strong.
But there was no real connection to the actual workers of the students,
there was no mass misery. The workers lived with increasing comfort - on  
the ground
of technology.
After some time this was realized, that is the point, where the Anti-Oedipe
is located.

Best wishes
