Max Elbaum's Off-Topic Reads

May 31st, 2018

Max Elbaum's latest book Revolution in the Air: Sixties Radicals Turn to Lenin, Mao and Che is a definitive study of how radicals from the sixties movements embraced twentieth-century Marxism, and what movements of dissent today can learn from the legacies of Lenin, Mao and Che. Elbuam draws on his personal experiences as a member of Students for a Democratic Society at University of Wisconsin-Madison, as an antiwar activist/labor organizer in the San Francisco Bay Area, and as a founding member of Line of March, deflating the notion that sixties radicalism consisted of middle-class student rebellions. 

Max will discuss Revolution in the Air: Sixties Radicals Turn to Lenin, Mao and Che on Tuesday 06/12 at 6pm at the Co-op. He will be joined by Tobita Chow, the head of the chair of The Peoples Lobby.
