Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ideological passions that, along with critical acclaim, greeted the publication of Paul Berman's showed how persistent are some of the battle lines drawn in the tumultuous years around 1968. recounts "in clean, clear, often funny style" () four episodes in the history of a generation: the worldwide student radicalism of the years around 1968; the birth of gay liberation and modern identity politics; the anti-Communist trajectory of the '68ers in the Eastern bloc; and the ideals and self-criticism of thinkers in America and in France who lived through these events and debated their meaning. Praised for both "sheer intellectual high-spiritedness" () and "the same sensitivity to the moral needs of the participants, and the same lucid evaluative balance, as Edmund Wilson's accounts of earlier periods" (philosopher Richard Rorty), firmly establishes Berman as "one of America's leading social critics" () and "one of our most gifted essayists" ().

Synopsis:
