|Description||"In a journey spanning more than 25 years, Hayden has gone from co-founding Students for a Democratic Society, to marriage to actress Jane Fonda, to serving in the California legislature. This political autobiography covers that tumultuous odyssey, concentrating on the 1960s. Perhaps more than any other individual, Hayden, an idealistic and pragmatic reformer, represented the early New Left. From civil rights organizing in Mississippi, to ghetto riots in Newark, to the conspiracy trial of the Chicago 8 for Vietnam War protests at the 1968 Democratic convention, Hayden was there. His well-crafted, often eloquent memoir is a vital contribution." —Library Journal|
