The first in-depth study of the long march of the US New Left after 1968

Revolution in the Air is the 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.

Reviews

“If you still believe sixties radicalism was nothing more than youthful middle-class confusion or parochial identity politics, then open these pages and dig.”

“The breadth of Elbaum’s knowledge … marks this book as an absolutely first-rate work of political scholarship.”

“It should be required reading for those interested in the modern history of social movements and for radicals of my generation who are trying to find out what went wrong.”

“Truly a superb work of scholarship that raises all the right questions.”
