Abstract:

By the spring of 1969, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) had reached its zenith as the largest, most radical movement of white youth in American history-a genuine New Left. Yet less than a year later, SDS splintered into warring factions and ceased to exist. SDS\'s development and its dissolution grew directly out of the organization\'s relations with the black freedom movement, the movement against the Vietnam War, and the newly emerging struggle for women\'s liberation. For a moment, young white people could comprehend their world in new and revolutionary ways. But New Leftists did not.
