Learning from the Sixties

By John Maher

Learning from the Sixties cover

This memoir by a leading New Left organizer poses tough questions, provides some answers born from front-line experience, and challenges readers to do what it takes to save our country. John Maher came of age in the 1960s and has been in the thick of things ever since: as an organizer, a factory worker, a schoolteacher, and an educator. Maher gives us an honest and clear-eyed perspective on what truly happened at many of the events that marked that decade of tumult–-from Vietnam Summer to the streets of Chicago after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., to the demonstrations at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, and beyond.
