Summary
Doug Rossinow presents here a vital reevaluation of the origins and aims of the new left student movement that arose in the 1960s. Focusing on the University of Texas at Austin, Rossinow shows how questions of race, class, gender, and religion all came to bear on the politics of radical white students, informing their collective search for social justice and their personal quests for authenticity. This book is sure to be a useful and insightful resource for historians of American culture and politics, and for general readers who seek to understand this chapter of American radicalism
