Summary
This book is the story of three men who, as friends and opponents, fought the battles of the idealistic '60s. Allard Lowenstein, quintessential liberal and architect of the celebrated "Dump Johnson" campaign, Dennis Sweeney, one-time protege of Lowenstein's and heroic figure in the Mississippi civil rights struggle, and author Harris, also a Lowenstein protege as well as draft-resisting Stanford student body president, made up the distinctive strands of that long-ago time when dreams of a better world and the notion that one person could make a difference moved a generation to take matters into its own hands. On March 14, 1980, in the grip of a paranoid schizophrenic fantasy, Sweeney walked into Lowenstein's Manhattan law office and shot his former mentor to death. This murder prompted Harris to look back across the years, to trace the scars of the battles, to remember who they had all been and how it had come to such an end. - Back cover
