Reviews

"It should be required reading for those interested in the modern history of social movements and for radicals of my generation who are trying to find out what went wrong."
--Los Angeles Times

"Truly a superb work of scholarship that raises all the right questions."
--Radical History

"The breadth of Elbaum's knowledge ... marks this book as an absolutely first-rate work of political scholarship."
--Village Voice

"If you still believe sixties radicalism was nothing more than youthful middle-class confusion or parochial identity politics, then open these pages and dig."
--Robin D. G. Kelley

"You can disagree with almost everything Elbaum writes ... and still value the clarity with which he poses the questions relevant to an effective anti-racist, feminist and class-conscious revolutionary movement in the twenty-first century."
--Marx & Philosophy
