About the Author

Tom Hayden is an American social and political activist, author, and politician who is director of the Peace and Justice Resource Center in Culver City, California. Hayden has taught at Scripps and Claremont colleges in Claremont, Occidental College, and the Harvard Institute of Politics. Hayden is the author of 19 books. He is known best for his major role as an anti-war, civil rights, and radical activist. In 1968, Hayden played a major part in the protests outside of the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, IL. Six months after, Hayden, along with other fellow protesters, was indicted on charges of conspiracy and incitement to riot as part of the "Chicago Seven."

Reviews

Hayden deserves credit for championing a constituency for whom few politicians are willing to vouch and most are happy to vilify. The passion and insight he brings.... makes [Street Wars] worthwhile reading.
