About the Book – New Edition

A New, Third Edition of Revolution in the Air rolled off the press April 10, 2018, with a Foreword by Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter.

“Max Elbaum has given us an incisive and critical history of the Other New Left – the radicals who brought class struggle and Third World liberation to the forefront, looked to the world for allies, and tried their best to work through the dynamics of race and class. If you still believe sixties radicalism was nothing more than youthful middle-class class confusion or parochial identity politics, then open these pages and dig.” –Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination

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