One of the world’s best-known radicals relives the early years of the protest movement

What makes a young radical? Reissued to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of 1968, Street Fighting Years captures the mood and energy of an era of hope and passion as Tariq Ali tracks the growing significance of the 1960s protest movement, as well as his own formation as a leading political activist.

Through his personal story, he recounts a counter-history of a sixties rocked by the Prague Spring, student protests on the streets of Europe and America, the effects of the Vietnam war, and the aftermath of the revolutionary insurgencies led by Che Guevara. It is a story that takes us from Paris and Prague to Hanoi and Bolivia, encountering along the way Malcolm X, Bertrand Russell, Marlon Brando, Henry Kissinger, and Mick Jagger.

This edition includes the famous interview conducted by Tariq Ali and Robin Blackburn with John Lennon and Yoko Ono In 1971.

Tariq Ali is a writer and filmmaker. He has written more than a dozen books on world history and politics—including Pirates of the Caribbean, Bush in Babylon, The Clash of Fundamentalisms and The Obama Syndrome—as well as five novels in his Islam Quintet series and scripts for the stage and screen. He is an editor of the New Left Review and lives in London.

“Tariq Ali has not lost the passion and vim which made him a symbol of the spirit of ’68 … has not seen fit to join forces with the terminally cynical, or set up a graven god that can be accused of failing … Ali has spent much of his life documenting America as the arsenal of counter-revolution.”
—Christopher Hitchens, Observer

“Has me rapt on the hearthrug, peering into the embers of memory … the memoir proposes that the overriding themes were the confrontation with US imperialism … the efforts of a generation to shake off the shackles of social-democracy and conduct war on capitalism à l’outrance.”
—Alexander Cockburn, Guardian

“We need to remember the sixties, and Tariq Ali’s book is valuable and well presented evidence of the time … as Ali points out the transition from revolutionary to arch-conservative is nothing new … we may frequently have been misguided, but nothing is sadder than a generation without a cause.”
—John Mortimer, Sunday Times

Street Fighting Years is readable, informative and also inspirational … the recollections of a person who has remained true to himself.”
