By the late 1960s, America felt like it was teetering on the edge of a vast transformation. Helping push it over the edge was a brigade of young radicals, the Students for a Democratic Society. This work brings to life the tumultuous decade that first defined and then was defined by the people who gathered under the SDS banner.
Harvey Pekar is best known for his graphic autobiography, American Splendor, on which the comic artist Gary Dumm collaborated. Paul Buhle, a senior lecturer at Brown University, was founding editor of the SDS journal Radical America.
