New on our bookshelf today:

Princeton Radicals of the 1960s, Then and Now
by William H. Tucker

Part history, part biography, this book describes the atmosphere of political activism at Princeton University in the 1960s, and the lives of nine student leaders, including members of Students for a Democratic Society, the most important radical student organization on American campuses at the time.

The Princeton alumni discuss how their participation in the radical movement has influenced their career choices and political beliefs. A number of these former activists are still involved in efforts to build a more egalitarian society, the same goal that motivated them almost half a century ago.
