This book is a memoir and a history of Berkeley in the early Sixties. Asa young undergraduate, Jo Freeman was a key participant in the growth of socialactivism at the University of California, Berkeley. The story is told with the "youare there" immediacy of Freeman the undergraduate but is put into historical andpolitical context by Freeman the scholar, 35 years later. It draws heavily ondocuments created at the time -- letters, reports, interviews, memos, newspaperstories, FBI files -- but is fleshed out with retrospective analysis. As eventsunfold, the campus conflicts of the Sixties take on a completely different cast, onethat may surprise many readers.
