Library Journal Review

Hayden, a longtime proponent of progressive thought and action, is a fine witness to the pivotal events of the Sixties. In a book both sweeping and reflective, he offers a primer on the era's political and cultural upheavals and an early assessment of President Obama measured against Sixties ideals. Hayden was everywhere then, from Newark to Berkeley, Hanoi, Cuba, Chicago, and Northern Ireland, and he knew everybody who was in power or a threat to power. Writing of the beginnings of the counterculture, feminist, and environmental movements, he highlights parallels between Vietnam and Wounded Knee; explores liberation theology, Jack Kerouac and the Beats, urban violence and poverty, and his strained relationship with Bill Ayers and the Weathermen; and writes movingly of a 2007 visit to old friends in Vietnam. Hayden is optimistic about Obama's leadership but concerned about current war policies and critical of current economic policies. He lists suggestions for Obama and indicates that a New Left is needed to advance a truly progressive agenda. VERDICT This book will introduce a new generation of readers to Hayden and provoke discussion of the impact of the Sixties on the current political scene. With fine notes and a useful 50-page time line; highly recommended.-Thomas A. Karel, Franklin & Marshall Coll. Lib., Lancaster, PA (c) Copyright 2010.

CHOICE Review

Tom Hayden's career in the 1960s was rich in experiences, from the civil rights movement in the South to the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Unlike Daniel Ellsberg's memoirs, Hayden's recollections do not so much enlighten as hold the reader in frustrated suspense. Insights on Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, and Allard Lowenstein are few and far between, particularly on Lowenstein, whose connection to the CIA's National Student Association had tremendous consequences for the Left. Hayden simply mentions that Lowenstein had a secret draft deferment and leaves it at that. Much of the book is in that vein, along with Hayden's sprinkling of views on every social controversy and movement of the sixties. Hayden's book shows him as engaged in politics and culture now as he was when he was a student at the University of Michigan. But it does not reveal many insights on the Students for a Democratic Society or its failure in 1969. Nevertheless, this book is valuable as a portrait of an activist of that turbulent era. For all readers. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries. D. R. Turner Davis and Elkins College

He received a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 1961 and did graduate work there in 1962 and 1963. While a student, he was a co-founder of the Students for a Democratic Society, participated in sit-in protests and voter registration drives in the South, and joined the Freedom Riders on interstate buses in the South.
