    I certainly wouldn't recommend Prof. Lilla's Social Thought courses to
    anyone on the basis of this article. What is this nonsense about the
    changes in Europe having occurred without "street marches," etc.? 1968
    in France would have been a genuine social revolution if the working
    class had been willing to back up the students. The Bader-Meinhof
    violent anarchists in Germany were not a tea-party.

    Do you teach in the social sciences? Consider my SAYING NO TO POWER
    (Creative Arts, Berkeley, 1999), for course use. It was written as a
    social history of
    the U.S. for the past three-quarters of a century through the eyes of a
    observer in most progressive social movements (I'm 84), and of the USSR
    from the
    standpoint of a Sovietologist (five earlier books) knowing that country
    longer than any
    other in the profession. Therefore it is also a history of the Cold War.

    forthcoming in Tikkun, etc. CHAPTERS MAY BE READ AT
