The 1970s were a complex, multilayered, and critical part of a long era of profound societal change. 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 a period that many have described as dominated by conservatism or confusion.

The 1970s were a complex, multilayered, and critical part of a long era of profound societal change. 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 a period that many have described as dominated by conservatism or confusion.
