Daydream Sunset and 1970s Radical Politics...
In some of the reviews of Daydream Sunset, there has been
mention that I minimize some of the politics of the 1970s.
For those desiring a more complete understanding
of the alternative perceptions and the people that held them in that period,
let me recommend reading The Way the Wind Blew and/or Max Elbaum's Revolution in the Air and/or Aaron Leonard's Heavy Radicals. I think the combination of these texts provide a fairly
comprehensive look at the trends of the Sixties New Left and counterculture
movements in the 1970s.
