About the Author:

Blake Slonecker is Associate Professor of History and Chair of Humanities at Heritage University, USA. His work has appeared in the Journal of Social History and The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture.

Review:

"Slonecker has spun an extraordinary tale of the intersection of communal living and journalism. A New Dawn for the New Left takes its place alongside Abe Peck's pioneering Uncovering the Sixties (1985) and John McMillian's brilliant Smoking Typewriters (2011) as essential reading on America's once-thriving underground press and the era it helped shape." - The Journal of American History

"This slim, jargon-free volume packs a big punch. It not only establishes the New Left's utopian credentials, it advances the argument for a long 1960s. Historians and students of late twentieth-century America will find much of value in this cogent, balanced, and remarkably sophisticated analysis of the New Left's utopian impulse." - American Historical Review

"At root, Slonecker offers more a cultural than a conventional political history of American radicals, locating their politics largely in their internecine dealings. In this approach, it succeeds brilliantly, reminding us that hard and patient work to change self and society both may produce new dawns, with wider vistas of freedom and justice." - H-Net Reviews

"Slonecker's book makes a substantial contribution to the literature about the Sixties." - The Rag Blog

"This book contributes significantly to moving beyond dead-end narratives of 'the Sixties' by demonstrating real continuities of activism stretching into 'the Seventies' (whatever one thinks those are) and the 1980s. Beyond that, it does something that few historians of the New Left have ventured: connect the social spaces and cultural habits of the hard core counter-culture to actual left organizations and real debates." - Van Gosse, author of Rethinking the New Left

"In this extraordinary undertaking, Blake Slonecker brings to life a theme that has long been understated in our historical literature. With meticulous research and engaging prose, he shows how the New Left's utopian strivings and vigorous politics outlived the Sixties and thrived in the Seventies. This is a path-breaking book by a promising and energetic young historian. It is also a lot of fun to read!" - John McMillian, author of Smoking Typewriters: The Sixties Underground Press and the Rise of Alternative Media in America

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 282 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.In the summer of 1968, with political violence on the rise in the US and new protest movements blossoming worldwide, Liberation News Service - a news agency for leftist underground media - split into warring factions, encapsulating the ambitions and tensions that were roiling the New Left. As both sides fought for control of the Movements information infrastructure, acrimony continued to deepen, until a decisive break occurred: the organizations old guard raided their own offices and fled to Montague Farm, a commune in western Massachusetts, leaving behind a determined coterie of upstarts who remained engaged with the world of New York radical politics. Over the next decade, activists on both sides would continue to battle, not only for social justice, but for personal liberation. This lively history traces the entwined histories of Liberation News Service and Montague Farm, providing an intimate look at how New Left institutions founded on the utopian ideals of the 1960s adapted their politics to survive in the 1970s.
