"Todd Gitlin, the highly regarded writer, media critic, and professor of sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, has written an authoritative and compelling account of this supercharged decade-- a decade he helped shape as an early president of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and an organizer of the first national demonstration against the Vietnam War. Part critical history, part personal memoir, part celebration, and part meditation, this critically acclaimed work resurrects a generation in all its glory and tragedy."--Back cover.
