By the light of burning dreams, the triumphs and tragedies of the second American revolution, David Talbot and Margaret Talbot with Arthur Allen - hardcover

'By the Light of Burning Dreams' chronicles some of the most important moments of activism from the 60s and 70s, and ties them into the arrival of today's major political players and major progressive movements.

From the founder of Salon, and the author of 'The Devil's Chessboard.'
