In this new edition of his sixties\\\' memoirs, Tariq Ali revisits his formative years as a young radical. It is a story that moves between London, Paris and Berlin, as well as Vietnam and Bolivia, encountering along the way Malcolm X, Bertrand Russell, Marlon Brando, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Henry Kissinger and Mick Jagger.
Ali captures the mood of those years with a novelist\\\'s lightness of touch as he tracks the growing significance of the nascent protest movement.
This edition includes a new introduction, as well the interview conducted by Tariq Ali and Robin Blackburn with John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1971.
Tariq Ali is a writer, critic and film-maker. He has written over a dozen books on world history and politics as well as scripts for both stage and screen. The first novel of his Islam Quartet, Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree, has been translated into several languages and was awarded the Archbishop San Clemente del Instituto Rosalia de Castro Prize for the best foreign language fiction published in Spain in 1994. The third, The Stone Woman was published by Verso in 2000.
