Tariq Ali takes readers through the fortunes of the British anti-war movement and the other political movements of the Sixties.


Abstract:  The memoirs of the activist Tariq Ali take the reader through the fortunes of the British anti-war movement and the other political movements of the Sixties, with frequent references to the international political context of the times. As the events rush by, narrated by Ali, the reader has the opportunity to reflect on the questions he raises in the final chapter: "Where have all the hopes and idealism generated during the sixties disappeared?", and on his answer: "Most of the world is passing through bad times, but however fragile and precarious the advances that have been made sometimes seem, hope itself cannot be abandoned."
