Review

“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.”
Sydney Morning Herald
