The Leftwing Seventies?
by PAUL BUHLE
The collective memories of the American 1960s-70s, especially for
youthful lefties if not only for them, break down into mini-generations.
To be twenty-five in 1970 meant living through a good chunk of the
‘fifties, experience Rhythm ‘n Blues (and gospel) on the radio, see
political daylight with the civil rights movement and plunge into the
most intensive experience imaginable, with a heavy aftermath. To be
fifteen in 1970 was a very different thing, with more fresh radical
experience and less gloomy a sense of aftermath in the era that
followed. I am, of course, talking here about (a)myself and (b) Ron
Jacobs, author of this remarkable little book, Daydream Sunset: the
Sixties Counterculture in the Seventies.
