"For readers interested in Red Power, Brown Power, women's liberation, peace movements, queer politics, and the white left, this important volume offers new perspectives and information that is not available elsewhere. The essays, by a mix of emerging scholars and scholar-activists, offer views of the recent past that should reshape the consensus about the 1970s to focus on activism, organizing, and violence from above and below." -Felicia Kornbluh, author of The Battle for Welfare Rights: Politics and Poverty in Modern America "Important and insightful, The Hidden 1970s boldly reimagines a decade that remains understudied and misunderstood." -Peniel E. Joseph, author of Waiting 'Til the Midnight Hour: A Narrative History of Black Power in America The 1970s were a complex, multilayered, and critical part of a long era of profound societal change. Indeed, several iconic events of "the sixties" occurred in the ten years that followed. The Hidden 1970s explores the distinctiveness of those years, a time when radicals tried to change the world as the world changed around them. This powerful collection is a compelling assessment of a wide variety of left-wing social movements during the period that many have described as dominated by conservatism or confusion. Contributors examine critical and largely buried legacies of the 1970s. Their essays provide fascinating insight into the myriad ways that radical social movements shaped American political culture in the 1970s and how they continue to do so today. Dan Berger is the author of Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity and the coeditor of Letters from Young Activists.
