A Tale of Two Utopias: The Political Journey of the Generation of 1968 by Paul Berman

The ideological passions that, along with critical acclaim, greeted the publication of Paul Bermans A Tale of Two Utopias showed how persistent are some of the battle lines drawn in the tumultuous years around 1968. A Tale of Two Utopias recounts in clean, clear, often funny style ( Washington Post ) four episodes in the history of a generation: the worldwide student radicalism of the years around 1968; the birth of gay liberation and modern identity politics; the anti-Communist trajectory of the 68ers in the Eastern bloc; and the ideals and self-criticism of thinkers in America and in France who lived through these events and debated their meaning. Praised for both sheer intellectual high-spiritedness ( Houston Chronicle ) and the same sensitivity to the moral needs of the participants, and the same lucid evaluative balance, as Edmund Wilsons accounts of earlier periods (philosopher Richard Rorty), A Tale of Two Utopias firmly establishes Berman as one of Americas leading social critics ( New Leader ) and one of our most gifted essayists ( Boston Globe ).
