Revolution in the Air: Sixties Radicals Turn to Lenin, Mao and Che (Haymarket) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Revolution In The Air is the first in-depth study of the long march of the US New Left after 1968. It tells the story of the ‘new communist movement’ which was the most racially integrated and fast-growing movement on the Left. Thousands of young activists, radicalized by the Vietnam War and Black Liberation, and spurred on by the Puerto Rican, Chicano and Asian-American movements, embraced a Third World oriented version of Marxism. These admirers of Mao, Che and Amilcar Cabral organized resistance to the republican majorities of Nixon and Ford.

By the 1980s these groups had either collapsed or become tiny shards of the dream of a Maoist world revolution. Taking issue with the idea of a division between an early ‘good sixties’ and a later ‘bad sixties,’ Max Elbaum is particularly concerned to reclaim the lessons of the new communist movement for today’s activists who, like their sixties’ predecessors, are coming of age at a time when the Left lacks mass support and is fragmented along racial lines.
