Editorial Reviews


"For readers interested in Red Power, Brown Power, women's liberation, peace movements, queer politics, and the white left, this important volume offers new perspectives and information that is not available elsewhere. The essays, by a mix of emerging scholars and scholar-activists, offer views of the recent past that should reshape the consensus about the 1970s to focus on activism, organizing, and violence from above and below."

(Felicia Kornbluh author of The Battle for Welfare Rights: Politics and Poverty in Modern America)

"Important and insightful, The Hidden 1970s boldly reimagines a decade that remains understudied and misunderstood."

(Peniel E. Joseph author of Waiting 'Til the Midnight Hour)

"This collection examines various radical movements of the 1970s and the sweep is wide-ranging. Among the most telling presentations are those discussing sexual abuse, Puerto Rican independence, gay liberation, and the pacifist underground. Recommended."


"Dan Berger has gathered fourteen studies of radical movements and offers a brief history of each movement's rise and life course, its current identity, and its influence. This is a well-creafted and successful book. I recommend it to scholars of social movements, for use in the classroom, and to persons committee to social action."

(Brian T. McGraw Mobilization 2011-03-01)

 “Out of the dull and ahistorical haze of the alleged 'post-civil rights' period arrives The Hidden 1970s, a measured and explosive reminder of the temporary nature of social quiescence and the permanent possibility of radical social crisis.  This book offers more than memories and lessons—it awakens an urgent embrace of the kind of political courage and fearlessness that can short-circuit the prevailing liberal-conservative consensus.  Dan Berger has assembled a living history of voices that will follow and alter us.”
(Dylan Rodríguez author of Forced Passages: Imprisoned Intellectuals and the U.S. Prison Regime 2010-12-01)

"The Hidden 1970s provides exceptional insight into the trajectory of radical organizing in the post-1960s decades as well as how the legacies of these struggles continue to affect radical organizing today."
(Make/Shift: Feminisms in Motion 2012-04-01)

"The essays in Dan Berger’s finely edited collection showcase organizations and issues rarely discussed in mainstream historical analyses of the 1970s. Together they offer a fine, usable history of radical activism that moves beyond the tired assumption that 'identity politics' dissolved the Left and the radical activism of the 1960s."
(Journal of American History 2011-12-01)

"This exciting volume takes readers to the city neighborhoods, prison yards, contested lands, and factory floors where men and women both sustained and expanded upon left-wing activist traditions during a period of political and economic retrenchment. Tightly organized and accessibly written, this collection is essential reading, not only for those interested in gaining a new perspective on the decade of the 1970s, but for anyone who cares about the fate of radicalism in the neoliberal era."
(Natasha Zaretsky author of No Direction Home 2010-12-01)

"Editor Dan Berger’s book The Hidden 1970s overflows with unheralded stories of social movements, each one from that
misunderstood and oft-maligned era in radical history (and geography)—the 1970s. Both the profound breadth of 1970s social movements and the equally broad range of movement tactics are well-represented in this edited volume."
(Human Geography 2011-11-01)
